I have a problem with migraines upon waking in the morning. I had my neck fused last year, that helped for awhile. Now the headaches are back.any suggestions.
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.

also have a torn disk in my back. Could this play a part? Thank you for your response.
