    Timothy Collins, MD responded:
    do you snore? you may have sleep apnea, which causes morning headaches.

    Its also possible that you still have headaches caused by your neck problem (cervicogenic headache). Your surgeon should be able to refer you to an anesthesia pain physician, who could do nerve blocks in your neck to diagnose cervicogenic headache.
