Night time headaches

I have recently started being woken by what i can only describe as a surging headache in the early hours. Since Christmas i have had one every 3 to 4 days. Takes ages to get back to sleep and the next day is a washout as the headache lingers. I have recently come off statins, i wasnt taking them for long. I already take amitryptiline at nught but these are not helping. I told the doctor but she put it down to anxiety, which seems odd as they are so regular. Has anyone else experienced this?

  • I have had something very similar on going back to work after the Christmas break

  • Yes exactly the same and around the same time 2.30 ish ..sometimes they lasted till mid midday sometimes all day...was getting them about 4/5 days a week then I'd have a couple of pain free days, only for the cycle to start again. I had a daith piercing out of sheer desperation and the migraines are certainly less frequent and don't las as long. Could be worth thinking about getting one

  • Thank you. I had never heard of this !

  • Google it and see what you think ..good luck
