Exam: Cannot be answered online. Certainly keep an eye on bP and stress reduction and stop the ibuprofen-may be causing rebound headaces.

You should: See a neurologist with a special interest in headaches to try to get the answer to that question. You don't snore and wake up gasping for air or stp breathing do you? Because sleep apnea can cause your symptoms and is often overlooked.

Morning headaches: Could be rebound fromyour Ibuprofen usage. Could be a positional headache caused by either a leak or other pressure related cause. See a headache specialist and they should be able to guide you further to diagnosis and treatment.
