Project Description

Great mornings don’t include headaches.

Headaches are not uncommon, and neither is waking up with them. There are several causes for waking up with headaches, and discovering the cause is the first step to putting a stop to them. We all go to bed at night with intentions of waking up feeling rested, refreshed, and ready for the day. But for many people, waking up with a headache interferes with that.

Steps to combat this

See your doctor for help if you’re blood pressure is high, your blood sugar is low or high, or you snore and think you may have sleep apnea. Work on getting in a regular sleep routine. Try going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, getting at least 7 hours of sleep. Try sleeping in a different position. Also, there are pillows made specifically for stomach sleepers, side sleepers, etc., so make sure you have the correct one.

Relax Stress is a common cause for waking up with tension headaches. Meditation, deep breathing exercises, and massage therapy can help to relieve stress. Cut down on caffeine. Just be aware that if you quit caffeine cold turkey, you may have temporary headaches from withdrawal. Stay hydrated. Staying hydrated throughout the day can help. Don’t drinking too much water before bedtime so you can sleep through the night without waking up for bathroom breaks. You should also try to avoid alcohol and smoking.

Avoid certain foods. According to the National Headache Foundation, there are foods that may trigger headaches. These foods include: Ripened cheeses, Chocolate, Fermented foods, Peanut butter, Foods containing MSG, Several processed meats, Citrus fruits and Sour cream.

If you’re a teeth grinder, try a night guard to help prevent clenching. If you’re unsure whether you grind your teeth or not, it could be a possibility, so talk with your doctor. If you think it may be sinus or allergy related, try a decongestant or antihistamine. It’s a good idea to speak with your doctor before starting a new medication.

Usually, for someone that wakes up with headaches, the cause isn’t very severe. But in rare cases, headaches can be a sign of more serious conditions so it’s a good idea to consult with your doctor.

We’re your Bed Buddy!!

Our mission is a simple one: We want to help you get incredible sleep, like a good sleep buddy should. And how you might ask? By not only conducting extensive research into the subject itself, but by personally testing out the thousands of mattresses on the market that claim to improve the quality of your slumber.

We really sleep on our mattress research by testing each for at least a hundred sleeps! We do not just compare features like review blogs, nor collate others’ online reviews, nor do a brief test of one to seven nights. No, our research includes a one hundred consecutive sleep test, so we can say, ‘Yup, this is what we found, because we really slept on it!’

We have no affiliation with the companies we feature, and any advertisements that appear on this website not at our discretion. They are there to keep the slumber party going. The Bed Buddy team takes incredible pride in the work we do. We hope that the reviews, news, and sleep information can help you on your personal journey for better sleep. And the job is fun – it’s not all naps! … sometimes… We love creating content that you enjoy, whether it’s on our site, or our newsletter, which you should sign up for.
