I've been waking up with really intense headaches/migraines every morning. I don't drink alcohol. This is really irritating, what could be going on?

In brief: Chronic migraine

A migraine is not just simply a headache.
Rather, it should be viewed as an attack that is accompanied by various neurological and non-neurological features as well as headache. Accompanying symptoms are facial pain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and blurred vision and sleep issues. See orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation and management.

In brief: SOUNDS LIKE

Chronic daily headaches, which often evolve in response to use of OTC meds such as tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen.
Need to breakup pattern via usage of preventative med such as topirimate or divalproex sodium, but OTC items such as magnesium, riboflavin, butterbur, or feverfew may work. Botox a consideration.
