Headaches wake me up at night and persists during the day. Have had frequent headaches for many years. Reason to worry?

Worry? No-Treat? Yes

Headache
Headaches waking you up persistently at night may be any number of things from tension type to migraine and there are others. Your use of the words "many years" suggests that these are likely benign (though I'm certain painful and perhaps even debilitating). Therefore, should you be WORRIED? I would say likely NOT...but I suggest a good headache specialist to get you treated on back to yourself

A headache wakes me up at night, why?

Migraine or cluster

Nocturnal
If your headaches are intermittent i.e with hours or days of headache free period then you are likely having cluster or migraine headaches. See a neurologist

Throbbing headaches wake me up during night. why?

Nti-tss

I have had great success treating patients with migraine headaches. Nocturnal para-function, or night time tooth grinding /clenching is a major cause of migraine headaches. Find a dentist in your area that is familiar with the Nti-tss night time appliance to help manage the outbreaks. Here is a website for you to learn more and find a dentist who may be able to help. http://www.nti-tss.com

Hi I have frequent headaches that wake me up at night and i also have it during day, and they hurt my eyes, saw eye doctor he sais everything is ok?

At this point -

Corneal_transplant
since eyes are not the cause of the problem - would encourage you to see your primary care provider. If she or he deems necessary - a neurology consult may be done.

What can I take for headaches that wake me up in the night?

Visit doctor

Frequent_headaches
For headaches that wake you in the night, you should take a visit to your doctor. This type of headache needs attention rather than ignoring. If the headaches are occurring after binge-drinking it's a different story -- but there's no additional information on your question. Please see your doctor ASAP.

Please what causes one to wake up sometime at night with a severe frontal headache. Thank you.?

Worrisome...

Sleep
If a headache is bad enough to awaken you from your sleep, or is very severe, whether frontal or other part of scalp (there are no pain fibers in the brain!), you must see your physician. Most presume a headache is just a headache. But if never evaluated/worked up for causes, particularly if pattern changes, or become more severe, it needs to be. Must rule out brain tumor. If no cause found, Rx.

Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

When I take a benadryl at night before I go to bed why do I always wake up with a horrific headache that lasts for about 45 min?

Known side effect

Benadryl
Benadryl can cause headache in certain patients (mechanism unknown). If you are taking Benadryl at night to help you get to sleep, I have had many patients do well taking melatonin (3 mg - over the counter) instead.
