In brief: Sleep study
A sleep study (nocturnal polysomnography) will be looking for any physical abnormalitie that can triger/worsen headaches.

In brief: Headaches
If you have tried all over the counterpain medications, you might consider a magnesium supplement, then see your doctor. You might need a daily medication like topamax (topiramate) or Propranolol to keep the headaches away.
You can also find out if your headaches are coming from tension, eye strain, dehydration, lack of sleep/poor sleep, skipping meals, stress, sleep apnea/snoring, or chronic sinus problems.
