Morning Headache Could Signal Depression

Waking up with a headache may be more than a sign of a sleepless night.

New research suggests that a morning headache could be the result of depression or anxiety disorders. This comes after a telephone survey of more than 18,000 people. Turns out nearly 30% of those with morning headaches also suffered from depression or anxiety disorders.

Stanford researchers say after depression and anxiety, other common causes included breathing disorders, high blood pressure, arthritis, or other ailments, and alcohol, which means regular sleepless nights may be a bigger reason than you think to talk to your doctor and find out if there is an underlying problem.

The study was led by researchers at Stanford University and is published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
