Morning headache

I was hoping someone could help. My 19 year old daughter has been waking up with severe headaches for the past 10 days. To the point where she is missing school. Once she finally gets up they get better after about 6 hours but still has a dull pain.

Any ideas?

Re: Morning headache

I get multiple types of headaches and migraines, but those are the most painful ones. They're either cluster headaches, which are EXTREMELY debilitating, or what is informally known as "alarm clock" headaches. They start between midnight and 6am usually and are unilateral, piercing pains, mostly around the eye? I would get about 50 in a month when I was in the middle of a migraine cycle.

I think that previous post is could be hormonal, but most likely stress hormones. It's a matter of finding the right meds to break the cycle. Research a treatment called DHE45. That helps stop migraine cycles, but doesn't work for everyone. It temporarily helped me. My migraines started right before I turned 19 too....about 4 years go.
