If you find yourself waking up in the morning with headaches, you are not alone.

According to the Sleep Foundation, one in 13 people experience morning headaches.

There are some common causes behind this annoyance, as well as things you can do to stop it.

The throbbing and pounding pain of a headaches can be debilitating.

“It’s very common in people that are in their most productive years of life though. So 20’s, 30’s, 40’s,” said Teshamae Monteith, MD, Chief of Headache Division Program for University of Miami Health.

Experiencing headaches in the morning can wreck the whole day.

Common culprits behind these headaches are sleep disorders such as insomnia, snoring, and obstructive sleep apnea.

A study in Poland found that nearly a third of people with sleep apnea tend to wake up with headaches.

A C-PAP machine to treat your sleep apnea can reduce or eliminate morning headaches.

“CPAP is the most commonly used and effective treatment for the more serious sleep apnea condition. It adds extra air pressure to the patients breathing passage to stabilize the breathing,” said Ryan Soose, MD, Director of Division of Sleep Medicine and Upper Airway Surgery UPMC.

Teeth grinding or clenching during sleep is another reason for morning headaches.

The grinding can be caused by an irregularly shaped jaw, stress, anxiety, and sleep disruption.

Caffeine can cause morning headaches. Those who are accustomed to drinking more than 200 milligrams of caffeine per day, equivalent to two cups of coffee, may experience morning headaches due to their caffeine withdrawal overnight.
