Migraine morning after


Before bed I may do 5 minutes of mild exercise. I know I am drinking adequate water as I get up for the bathroom at 2am everyday. The next morning I wake up with a headache and I don't know why. Very frustrating and I do not want to keep taking tablets. I believe my sleep position is fine. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks

  1. Hello, Hope you're doing good. One of my loved one had migraine years ago she performed yoga and meditation 20 mins a day very morning after waking up. There was this same situation with her too but soon within 6 months she started to experience no migraine headaches at all. I must suggest you to try doing yoga related to migraine. Hope this will help! Also check shoptruepills to learn more.

    1. many thanks I’ll try.

  2. Waking up with a migraine is awful! We often sleep through the warning signs that would've provided us a chance to nip the attack in the bud so by the time we wake up, the attack is often full blown, making it difficult to tamp down. There are many who deal with this challenge and we have some good resources on the topic for you to review. Here are a few articles (be sure to look at the comment section that follow them as our community members often share very helpful information and resources there): And: Lastly:

    1. Thanks for sharing and joining in the conversation. In addition to the information you've been given, I'd like to add it may be worthwhile to have a sleep study done to see if there are any underlying sleep issues. There are a number of sleep issues other than sleep apnea that can contribute to waking with migraine pain. Let me know what you think! Nancy Harris Bonk, Patient Leader/Moderator Team
