Headache from laying down

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Recently I've been getting really painful headaches in the left side of my head, if I lie down on it. For example, I always sleep on my left side and this morning I woke up to a banging headache, and about 45 mins ago I went to have a quick nap and ten minutes into it, I have this splitting headache again.

Anyone know what the problem is?

    Are you eyes hurting? Or do you need glasses?

    Does it go away with paracetamol ?

    My eyes don't hurt and I don't wear glasses, although my jaw kind of aches on that side too. The pain in my head is mainly on the left side of my forehead.
    Yeah it does usually go away with a couple of Asperin tablets.

    Just thought it might have been eye strain or something, especially with all the books and reading you will have done for revision :p

    I would keep taking aspirin if that helps, but if it persists. Maybe speak to a pharmacist first then maybe a doctor.

    might be something to do with pillows.. maybe too high /too low?

    changed anything in that area recently? stuff with your neck and back can generally cause headaches.
