In brief: Different reasons

There are different headaches types and causes.
From sleep medicine perspective, waking up with a headache is probably due to a sleep problem: most commonly sleep deprivation or sleep apnea.

Headaches on awakening are a common symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. The typical OSA headache is dull, not one-sided, and fades away within one to two hours.
