    Ok RJers, let's talk about this. I got 8 hours of sleep and for seemingly no apparent reason I woke up with a god damn fucking headache this morning ruining the start of my day. Now I have to lock myself in my room until it goes away because the second I step outside the LA streets with a headache and hear one douche bag honk their horn or one god damn dump truck beep beep beep going reverse I'm going to commit apocalypse on this society.

    Has this happened to you? Any remedies to get rid of or attenuate this problem?

    If you wake up with a headache on a regular basis you should def. see a doc. (Provided the headache is not a hang-over icon_lol.gif )

    what is wrong with taking an aspirin or something like that?

    It happens to me sometimes and usually coffee and chocolate take care of it for me

    Headaches....a lot of causes and plenty of varieties. Saying just headache from a medical point of view is kinda abstract....gotta describe it further, like one side of the head, entire head, with pains in the eyes, are you seeing streaks of lights, nauseous etc.

    Eat before bed. Get a blood tester. Check your blood sugar first thing in the morning. You could very well have low blood sugar.

    Make sure you DO NOT take OTC headache meds. Over 1/3 of the folks make make their headaches chronic doing so. Instead, treat whatever is causing the headache, rather than the symptoms.

    Happened many times - especially with drastic weather changes.

    I'm likely to wake up with a headache if I drink a lot of water after my evening meal or if my evening meal is large, very rich, or heavy on the protein. If I do wake up with a headache, two Excedrins will take care of it.

    It happened to me and i could tell that it came from my cervical bones... you might sleep in a wrong position, be careful how you place your head on the cushion... and see a doctor ;)

    Yep, position is critical. Came down to the pillows I was sleeping in so spent a ton on a good bed and some latex pillows. Best thing I ever did.

    Sleeping even a little out of ideal position can create a lot of tension around the neck which will lead to headaches, sore eyes, and even back pain.

    I used to have that problem regularly. I had extreme low blood sugar and slight hypertension. I got treatment and haven't had a problem since. I think it has been about 6 months or so since I took my last Ibuprofen.

    I think that some of you haven't watched the news lately as you recommended Tylenol. It has all been recalled and if you have purchased any within the last couple of months, you should return it to the store where purchased. I was at Walgreens yesterday and the tylenol shelves were empty.

    ChuckyStud may be correct. I have had hypogycemia (Low blood sugar) for over 25 years. It's very manageable if you eat right.
    Here, from WebMD.com:

    What are the symptoms?

    The symptoms can be different depending on how low your blood sugar level drops.

    * Mild hypoglycemia can make you feel hungry or like you want to vomit. You could also feel jittery or nervous. Your heart may beat fast. You may sweat. Or your skin might turn cold and clammy.
    * Moderate hypoglycemia often makes people feel short-tempered, nervous, afraid, or confused. Your vision may blur. You could also feel unsteady or have trouble walking.
    * Severe hypoglycemia can cause you to pass out. You could have seizures. It could even cause a coma or death.

    If you've had hypoglycemia during the night, you may wake up tired or with a headache. And you may have nightmares. Or you may sweat so much during the night that your pajamas or sheets are damp when you wake up.
    How is hypoglycemia diagnosed?

    To diagnose hypoglycemia, your doctor will do a physical exam and ask you questions about your health. You will need tests to check your blood sugar levels. Your doctor will also ask you about any medicines you take and whether you have recently lost or gained weight.

    If a blood test shows that you have low blood sugar, and if you have symptoms that go away after you eat a snack or drink with sugar in it, you probably have hypoglycemia.


    Go to any good drug store and get yourself some G.T.F. Chromium. NOT Chromium Picolinate. OK, of you can't get GTF then get the pico.

    GTF...and pico chromium... helps you maintain a even blood-sugar level in your system. You may have over-exercised and under-fed your body what it needed, so Mother Nature gave you a wake-up call to stop it! LOL

    PS: Ask your Dr for the 8 hour blood-sugar test..not the faster one. My symptoms didn't show up until 7th hour so the 4 hour would have come back clean.

    The same thing happened to me two days ago.

    I didn't eat nearly as much before bed as I normally do and I'd just been through a couple of days of an intense workout program I'm getting into for the summer and I woke up with what can only be described as a hangover. I didn't drink anything the night before( cuz I'm a minor and all, lol) so I figured I'd just sleep some more but that didn't help either. What did help was drinking a copious amount of water and a couple of meals. It took a while and a lot of water to kick in but that did the trick.

    For my case I'm pretty sure I was seriously dehydrated from not drinking enough water with my supplements but it might be a different reason for you.

    Very true. It's related to barometric pressure.

    Also, just because you get 8 hrs of sleep doesn't matter. Was it your normal pattern or did you go to bed late or early?

    Also certain foods might trigger a migraine or headache. Certain food allergies, or allergies in general can trigger a headache.

    If I work out the back, shoulders, or anything around the neck area I have the propensity for a migraine that night or the next day.

    Higher testosterone levels might cause a headache.

    A high stress level also makes for a good environment for a headache. Were you anxious to wake up on time? Did you have somewhere to go early in the morning?

    Did you have any alcohol the previous night? Even one drink might trigger a headache the next day for me.

    The only thing that seems to work for me is lots of fluids(especially fruit juice, and especially apple juice....I don't know why), warm soup(perhaps related to clearing sinuses?), aspirin including caffeine, and Aleve. An herbal remedy that you have to take consistently to avoid headaches/migraines would be butterbur.

    Headaches are often a symptom of dehydration. Keeping hydrated by drinking a lot of water throughout the day (particularly before and after alcoholic drinks) is an excellent way to prevent some headaches. Water works wonders for lots of things.

    My first guess is dehydration.

    Sounds like sinuses. You need someone....older, with strong hands...and a gentle touch.....to rub your temples...while you are lying face up....etc.

    I recommend changing your pillow...you may need something firmer or softer...give it a try...

    One of the most common causes of morning/waking headaches is sleep apnea. Talk to your doctor about getting a sleep study.
