Hi. I have been dealing with headaches on a daily basis for well over 2yrs now. I wake up with a headache, I even have them all throughout the day. I constantly take some type of pain medications everyday to soothe my pain. I have had head exams and they have all been negative. I had one doctor tell me I suffer from sleep apnea but when doing research on sleep apnea the only symptom I have is morning headaches and lack of concentration. Is this possible or could I be suffering from some other type of disease? Cedric.
What other symptoms of sleep apnea would you expect to notice? Some people with sleep apnea never notice any symptoms themselves. Waking with a headache is very often an indication that a sleep issue is the trigger. For more on this, see Migraines, Headaches, and Sleep .
Another issue to look at is your daily use of pain medication. Taking any kind of pain ...

Full Question: I am 30 years old. For the past two years, I have been waking up with terrible headaches (about 85% of the time). The pain is felt all over the head in that it is not localized to one area. I wonder if it could be a muscular problem because my headaches are tender to the touch. If I touch my head, there are sensitive areas all over. By mid morning, my headaches are just annoying - not so intense. I don't typically medicate for these headaches as it really hasn't helped in the past. I do not think it is related to caffeine withdraw or teeth grinding at night. And the eye doctors don't see any pressure problems in my eyes. I do experience some stress with my job. On really bad days, the pain extends into my spine in my middle upper back.

Plus, tension-type headaches can trigger Mig...
