Early Morning Awakening Headaches -
These types of headaches awaken a person in the early hours of the morning (usually after 4 AM) or they are seen when a person awakens in the early morning. Cluster, migraine and tension-type headaches come under this category. The pain is intense during the early morning hours. People who usually suffer from chronic tension-type headaches are seen suffering from early morning headaches.
Depression is most commonly said to cause these headaches. The side-effects of the the pain reliever drugs, ergots caffeine are also said to cause the headaches.
The production of natural painkillers like endorphins and enkephalins in the body drops down and adrenalin is produced in larger quantities between 4 and 8 in the morning. Adrenalin affects the blood pressure and influences the regulation of dilation or contraction of blood vessels, thereby triggering migraine attacks, resulting in early morning headaches.
Serious diseases are not very common causes of early morning headaches. Diseases like brain tumors, sleep apnea and extremely high blood pressure very rarely cause early morning headaches.
