I usually suffer from migraines, but sometimes I get bad tension headaches from sleeping "too hard." Does anyone know what I mean? When your brows furrow and you're sleeping really intently, or when you sleep too long, you can actually wake up with a splitting headache. What should I do to prevent sleeping too hard?
That is a very interesting question. I get those too. I don't really have any suggestions but I take Advil for mine and it sort of helps. What do you do to make yours go away?
I don't know if many people will agree with this, but I drink coffee to try to make it go away. I start with water to protect my kidneys and liver, and then I drink coffee. I think I need it in the mornings. I think it's effective about 50% of the time. The other times, I will have to take a strong medication such as Excedrin migraine. I am actively seeking a better solution. Prevention of headaches, period. It's my main health problem.
Hi ladies, I sometimes wake up with headaches as I have sleep apnea. What I do, as I do with any headache. I blow oxygen into my brain, The headache will go away. I do not use pills for headaches. Hold your nose and blow like a blow fish. This gives air to your brain. Do it a number of times. You areate your brain, stopping the headache. This will also help you stay awake, if you need not to go to sleep.
I suffer with tension headaches reguarly when I wake in the morning - some days are worse than others and I have tried a number of remedies. I tried Artistry's tip above yesterday morning and it absolutely does work! I actually can't believe that not only did it work, it cleared it up really quick too. Many thanks Artistry from a tension headache-free mum of 3 :)
Artistry, thanks for that helpful tip, I'm definitely going to try that! I often wake up with tension headaches, and it's something I just cannot stand! Coffee sometimes helps, but I will try this out as well, thanks!
I just wanted to report back further on Artistry's tip, so you know it wasn't a one-off fluke, I have tried it several times since and it has worked each time too. :)
