    I find that if you are dehydrated it causes headaches.If iI wake up with a headache,instead of immediately taking a paradox extra or whatever painkiller,I drink a glass of water and it is amazing how the headache can disappear quite fast.Also make sure you are sleeping on the right pillow,because if not it can cause neck ache and also headaches.Just try for a day or two and see what happens.drink plenty of water.Feel better.

      Thank you both for you replies.

      I'm not really a water person but I do keep a bottle of water beside me all the time and take sips here and there.

      Headaches are making me feel sick and dizzy and I just want to lay in bed.

      Hi cloe, I couldn't agree more about drinking more water to stop a headache. If you're not that keen try little and often 😊

      Sending you a PM with a link for some natural remedies.

      Thank you I will look at the link now.

      I also feel as though my left ear is all clogged and no matter what I do I can't unclog them so that could be part of the headach

      Lansoprazole is for acid reflux which isn't helping me and the spray is for my clogged ear which also isn't helping lol

      Could acid reflux/heartburn be part of anexity?

      My headache hasn't been as bad today and iv been sipping water instead of drinking it normal as when I do I bring it back up

      Just want to wake up and forget all about this anexity been 3 months I have been house bound with it I feel so ill

      If you want to reduce the headaches,PLAIN water in the morning,but a sip here and there is not much help.Believe me,it is surprising that it can work quickly.I don't have to take nearly as many Panadol Extra as I used to.Just try a glass.Normally headaches in the morning are due to dehydration.

      feel better.
