Why does my wife get headache in the mornings ?

My wife gets a headache every morning when she wakes up. This has been happening for the last week or so. It subsides as the day progresses. She takes Naprosyn (Naproxen) for her migraine but says this headache is different (she gets migraine headaches only on one side). Please let me know if this could be something serious. Thanks in Advance.

Hello krishnan,

Welcome to

Headaches have a variety of etiologies (causes). It is reassuring that the morning headache gets better throughout the day. Perhaps her headache is being caused by sinus problems. It is difficult to diagnose based on your description.

However, if the headaches become worse or do not resolve within the next week, she may need to visit her family physician for a complete workup of her headaches.

Be well,
Dr. Kimberly
