The headaches: you describe may be due to a SINUS problem. Lying down decreases the emptying of fluid filled sinuses due to seasonal allergies! This is "that time of year"!! Try an OTC anti-histamine/anti congestion medication . Nasal spray (with OTC cortisone like medication) is also worth a trial! Just a thought! Dr Z

See your doctor.: Certainly sounds like you have a problem that needs a physical exam to help determine the solution. I would see your doctor soon as you can to start getting answers. Good luck.
