Possible Bruxism: Waking up with headaches is a common symptom of bruxism, which is grinding or clenching your teeth at night. This is not always something that a partner will hear you doing and usually most people aren't aware they are doing it. Bruxism can be very destructive to your teeth, jaw muscles and TMJ (jaw joint). A proper diagnosis and effective treatment can be achieved from a highly trained dentist.

TMJ !!: Most likely you are clenching and/or grinding your teeth, and your jaw and facial muscles in spasms may be triggering your headaches. Get evaluated by a dentist or physician asap to get on the road to recovery !

TMJ, sleep disorder: 2 most common possibilities. TMJ disorder or sleep apnea. Start with your MD. If negative for sleep apnea, see a TMJ expert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.

Please see doctor : Headaches that awaken you from sleep are a danger signal, and need investigation in person. Please see your family physician as soon as possible for evaluation. Blood pressure problems could cause this, and so could several other things which need prompt attention.
