There are many potential causes of morning headaches. The most common one is caffeine withdrawal. Eliminating caffeine from your diet can help. Another reason is related to neck muscle spasm. Sleeping on a flat pillow and doing strengthening isometric neck exercise - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GMxmOYR69E can also help. Sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome are associated with morning headaches. Snoring, insomnia, and being tired in the morning despite sleeping for 7 - 8 hours suggests a sleep disorder.
