A lot of times I wake up with headaches and mainly they are long night sleeps. Could it be because I get too much sleep? I mostly sleep more than 8h.

In brief: Sleep & headaches

Length of sleep may not be as important as the quality of sleep.
Headache evaluations are complex. Simple things such as grinding your teeth at night may be responsible. Medications which alter sleep cycles are another common source of problems. Sleep apnea is another culprit. If you have a partner, you may want to ask their feedback on your sleep habits. Ultimately you may require a sleep study.
