Just try to get up at the same time that you would on a weekday morning. You might feel groggier throughout the day, but at least you’ll stay pain free. If you go to bed at your usual time that night and rise at the usual time, you should feel like your old self again.
For confirmed coffee drinkers, sleeping late on weekends can pack a double punch: You’ll get too much sleep and delay your first cup of coffee (a headache is a common symptom of caffeine withdrawal). Of course, doctors advise you to give up the caffeine altogether, particularly if you tend to get headaches. But if you have to hit the java, at least make sure that you do it around the same time each day.
Some women are actually awakened in the middle of the night by headaches. Nocturnal headaches often occur during the brain’s passage from slow-wave sleep to its most active REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. Serotonin levels are thought to drop during this transition period, and in some people, it’s believed that this change brings on the pain. Certain medications that interrupt slow-wave sleep and decreases REM sleep- will also clear up distress.
“At least fifty percent of people with sleep-associated headaches can find relief without using medication,” says Dr. Dexter. “In addition to regulating your sleep schedule and avoiding alcohol and caffeine, make sure you practice good sleep habits: Don’t eat or exercise less than two hours before bedtime; remove anything noisy - - TV, radio-from the bedroom and sleep in a dark, cool room.”
