Sleep Apnea: Snoring can be a sign that you have sleep apnea. This will cause you to have periods during sleep when you stop breathing following by a recovery phase after your brain "wakes up". The headaches upon waking up are a sign that you are retaining carbon dioxide. Treatment is available and will allow you to obtain a restful sleep without the headaches.
