Daily morning headaches?

Edited , 7 users are following.

The past couple of months I've been experiencing headaches just about every morning starting around 3;30 to 4 am. I'm 53 and hopefully close to meno. I've had only 3 periods in the past 9 months. So I must be getting near the end. Hoping that's what causing the headaches. I take my blood pressure. It's a bit elevated but not horrible.

Anyone else have frequent morning headaches?

    I've had the same thing for about 2 weeks. I suffer from hormonal migraines a few times a month, but these 1st thing in the morning are different. I'm 51 and still get regular periods, so not sure. frustrating

    Oh my gosh! I was on the site here trying to find anyone else with headaches and you have nailed it! I wake up at least once a week with a back headache around 3-3:30 am and its a killer! I just did this AM and tha'ts why I am on here. Nothing takes it away! Mine eventually subside by 7 - 8 am (took Advil at 330 am).

    Of course with the anxiety, it doesn't help because I start thinking its blood pressure etc. Same thing here...its up a little but nothing to bad.

    How have yours been doing?

      My morning headaches seems to have subsided for now. I also stopped eating a small snack before bed. I always used to so I didn't get low blood sugar in the middle of the night. I don't have diabetes but have always had hypoglycemia which seems to be getting weirder with all the hormones going haywire. I also stopped getting the "quivering" I would have within a couple hours of falling asleep...I'm thinking it's all related.

    Do you snore? It could possibly be sleep apnea. You might not be getting adequate amount of oxygen while are you sleeping hence the headache when you wake up.
