Well I guess my problem is that I have constant non-stopping headaches. I've had them for a while now but these past few weeks, they've been really bad. Sometimes, when i get up too fast during one of those headaches (which frankly is all of the time now) i get really dizzy and my vision gets spotty but only for a matter of seconds. Also lately, i've been feeling tired all the time even though i sleep early and at an healthy hour. And also, sometimes when i move my head, it feels like my brain is moving inside and it hurts a lot. These headaches sometimes wake me up at night and other times keep me from sleeping. I've been to a doctor and had an MRI scan but i'm still waiting for the results please help because i'm really worried. Thank you, Farida!
There are many possible causes for your symptoms. They could be from Migraine, another headache disorder, or something else...
Full Question: My question pertains to the CPAP machine that I have tried unsuccessfully to use. I have tried different face and nasal mask to see if it would help any but it hasn't. The sleep number and humidity numbers have also been changed by the doctor several times. I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea so I really don't think the machine was necessary in the beginning. My question is: many times I would wake during the night or morning with a bad headache/migraine. The sleep doctor always said "NO" it was not the machine that was causing it but when I did not sleep with the machine there was no head pain and then when I would put the mask back on for several nights I would have the pain. Now I tried this on and off for 9 months and now have stopped completely. I can't say that I have waked with head pain since I stopped the machine. What is your opinion? Thank you, Marlene.

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
