Two possibilities: occur to me. 1. SINUS congestion which may be "POSITIONAL" 2. CERVICAL RADICULOPATHY (Pinched nerves) Just a thought Hope this helps! Dr Z

Similar to past HAs?: Thank you for posting this question. I don't want to alarm you, but since you are asking this question online, I'm assuming that this isn't similar to past headaches you've experienced in the past. In a 54-year-old woman like you, this positional description deserves a full evaluation, and you may need testing. Please let your doctor know about this headache. Good luck!
