What do you think is the cause of waking up each morning with a migraine on my right side? I sleep on either side with one leg straight and one knee up (taught to me by a doctor).
An Eye Physician and Surgeon is suggesting I go to a sleep clinic because my husband says I snore softly but do not wake up.
Thank you for your insights. Nancy .
A sleep study isn't a bad idea. Snoring might indicate sleep apnea.
When people wake with a Migraine, sleep issues are the most common trigger. It can be too much sleep, too little sleep, interrupted sleep, an irregular sleep schedule, or poor quality sleep. Take a look at our video Migraines, Headaches, and Sleep . It's recommended that Migraineurs go to bed and get up at the same time every day, including weekends and holidays.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
