Sleep disorder

Could headaches be related to a sleep disorder?

It’s possible for different reasons but to know for sure consult your doctor.

Dear Chick,
Yes. Headaches could be a sign of a sleep disorder or other neurological conditions. Patients who experience oxygen desaturation at night could be suffering from Sleep Disordered Breathing. The headches could be more pronounced as they wake up. Also, if you are waking up with headaches it could be a sign of stress, grinding or clenching.
A sleep study could would tell you what is going on, especially if you have these headaches when you wake up.
