Why am I waking up with a bad headache almost every day? I dont drink alcohol at all, I do drink coffee, it dies down after I eat or drink coffee.

Caffeine withdrawal . Coffee has caffeine and if you are a heavy coffee drinker headaches are a symptom of withdrawal. Drinking coffee will diminish headaches. Exceptin and other pain relievers also have caffeine because it helps with migraines and some other types of headaches. If headaches are persistent you may want to discuss this with your doctor.
