Headaches waking me in the night........

Edited , 4 users are following.

I am 51 in perimenopause and am on HT now for about 1.5 years. I swear I have experienced it all...sweats, heart palps, dizzy, hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety BAD...bleeding weird, etc. Which led me to HT that I am on. Has HELPED tremendously.....but now for the last 2 weeks, I have been woken by a headache on each side of temples ....as soon as I sit up or get up ...they go away. Is this part of this stage in life? Has anyone else experienced this or headaches waking them?

So annoying....UGH

Thanks to all.

    i am not sure if my case is similar to yours. I was on HRT before. it helped my hot flush but not my dizziness. I got splitting headache one night on one side of my head one month after my doc upped my HRT. I had the spitting headache everyday until someone told me that HRT might have caused the migraine and I discontinued the HRT. However, after my taking off the HRT, although the splitting headache went away, other symptom came.

      Have you had your blood pressure checked out, since ive been going through perimenopause ive been getting migraine kind of headaches which has been a sign of low or high blood pressure.

      Worth getting it checked out for your peace of mind.

    Don't know if it's a migraine or not but the only time I get a headache in the middle of the night it's a migraine. Sometimes migraines are worse while lying down. Try and ice pack to see if that helps? That can help if a migraine (along with ibuprofen, etc). I usually get migraines in the morning hours around 3:30 - 4:30 a.m. I go to bed at 10 pm.

    Something to consider? Hormones can trigger migraines.
