Headache Questions

In the past week, not a single day has gone by without me having a headache. It feels kind of like a cross between a sinus headache and a stress headache. (you know when your headache is caused by a sore neck - or whatever, your neck feels sore...)

Anyway. I was thinking, Can you get a headache from too MUCH sleep? I know you can get headaches super easy when you are lacking sleep. It just seems that when I have an extra hours sleep in the morning, I am guaranteed a headache.

the one good thing, is that the headaches go away (at least 90%) within an hour of taking Advil or Tylenol.

I have some "female" vitamins in my cupboard that I always forget to take, it says right on the bottle that taking vitamins will increase my energy. And iron pills are the same, right? If you have low iron you are always tired, or am i thinking or something else?

It seems to me that if my headaches are caused by too much sleep, taking some energy pills would do me good in more ways than one. (I always feel very groggy and have no ambition to do ANYTHING when I have slept too long)

I've read that any changes in sleep patterns can cause headaches.

Hope you get it figured out soon.

Blogarita - I do know that on days I get up and stay up, I feel better all day, but becuase my headaches are easily controlled, one Tylenol or Advil, I tend not to worry over much. however, maybe energy pills would give me and extra boost and I would be able ( willing?) to exercise more often? I do know that exercises helps to manage headaches~
