Morning headaches, or tension headaches, begin as soon as you wake up. They can last a little as a few minutes or continue throughout the day. Morning headaches come as a result of improper sleep positions, insomnia or even the wrong kind of pillow. Stress can also produce a morning tension headache. Morning tension headache sufferers feel pain on both sides of the head, and especially in the scalp area and temples. Morning headaches feel worse with exposure to bright light.
