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: Headaches waking you up persistently at night may be any number of things from tension type to migraine and there are others.

I run cool mist humidifier and air purifier at night but i wake up every morning with a headache. Do you have any ideas why? Thank you
As an allergist,: I cringe a little when I hear about humidifiers because they are ripe for biofilms (colonization by bacteria and fungi).

Other benign causes of morning headaches include snoring/sleep apnea, migraine, grinding teeth/TMJ pain, poor sleep etc ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My anus has been extremely itchy especially at night the last few days. Every morning I wake up with a terrible headache and stiff neck. What could this mean? Infection?
Pinworms?: One of the most common causes of nighttime anal itching is an intestinal parasite called pinworms but diagnosis requires evidence of their presence. The treatment is a prescription medication like albendazole. I can't think of any way this could be connected to your headache & stiff neck. So, in any case, you need to see a doctor. ...Read more
