Some people have trouble with headaches very often, for a very long time. This is called chronic headache and have many different types of which you can read here. By having headaches every day could manifest in different ways, some people wake up with a pulsuating headache. Some people who suffer from a constant headache with no pain free time has another type of headache called cluster headaches, which is the worst type of headache you can get. People who is actually have problem with cluster headaches have talked to an experienced doctor, a neurologist. Neurologist are specialists when it comes to the brain and can help you determine which type of headache you’re suffering from. The neurologist will then do a few tests to rule out other possible symptoms because cluster headaches is a rather rare neurological disorder. If you suffer from headaches everyday I would advise you to talk to a neurologist. If you wake up with headaches in the morning I recommend you to check your current condition, like sleeping patterns, loss of energy during every day activities, trouble with concentration etc.

I have myself during a period of my life experienced headache. I was about 7 years old at the time and me, my two brothers and my dad was driving home after a nice day at the beach. Somewhere along the road we stopped at a a crossing with a red light. When the light turned green we continued driving, seconds later it all went black. What we didn’t notice was that the driver from the other direction didn’t stop when the light turned red hon his side (since he was drunk) and hit our car in full speed.

A few months after the accident I started to get very painful headaches, migraines. The doctor thought it was after the whip-lash effect the collision had had on my neck, and my neck was very tense. What I had got was Chronic tension-type headache. The headaches kept coming, several days per week. It was not too often that I woke up and had a constant headache every day. My problems didn’t stop until about 6-7 years later. I tried a lot of things but it had almost no effect on me whatsoever, but the headaches eventually stopped. My theory is that the neck was remembering the damage it had taken and I got really tense in the neck as a result of that. I guess what helped me was relaxation exercises and visiting a doctor who massaged my neck. The massage was focused on finding trigger points in the neck who triggered my headaches and by using a press and release technique he helped the muscles relax and in the long run, me. Thanks to a lot of effort and patience I have no problem with headaches at all! I suggest you do a little reading on this site if you found this site by searching for “headaches every day”.

Wake up with headache everyday?

The reason why many people wake up with a headache everyday can come from many things. It could be a bad nights sleep, lack of water (dehydration), not visiting the toilet when you actually need to pee, you drank too much the day before, you ate something bad, you’re stressed out, drinking to much caffeine. Thinking back on what you did before you went to bed might be a good option since it can help to rule out the most obvious reasons as a i stated before. If you didn’t have a headache when you went to bed and still get them when you wake up it has to be triggered when you are in your bed, or when you are sleeping. Try to check under which conditions you are sleeping, is it dark enough, any loud noises? Many people underestimate the importance of having a and quiet room to sleep in. The hormons which helps us get a good nights sleep is called melatonin and depends of how dark it is. Many people doesn’t change their sleeping habits but supplement with medicated man-made melatonin. There are quite few melatonin side effects but I personally recommend doing it the natural way. Another thing is that it might be too dirty where you sleep, try to clean your room where you sleep (or your house really) to get rid of all the dust particles that swirl around in your house… the list goes on.

One thing many people can’t figure out themselves are that they might be clenching/grinding their teeth while they are sleeping. When you are grinding your teeth on your sleep your cheeck muscles get tense and so does many muscles in your neck too. This is why so many people wake up with a headache every morning, by grinding their teeth. Try to visit a doctor to get some help with this, and it is actually quite easy to fix, but it might be hard to find. By solving this problem you might just solve your chronic headache problem which have always bothered you in the early mornings.

Try to go trough a sleep study to find out why might be causing your headaches, it can be many things. And it is just not worth it to start the day by having a bad headache and not knowing why, it really sucks, trust me I know how it feels to wake up every day with a migraine and you really don’t want to spend all your time consumed by pain. Try to treat your headaches as soon as you possibly can and get to know how to stop them. Maybe you will wake up with a smile everyday instead, how’s that for a change?
