Why do I feel dizzy and have a headache after sleeping for a long duration?
Hello, Is it common to feel dizzy and have a headache after sleeping for long hours? Is it just me or does anyone else also have a headache after sleeping for long hours? Can anyone tell me why do I feel dizzy and have a headache after sleeping for long hours? Yesterday I slept for 4 hours in a day, when I woke up I felt dizzy and had a headache after that. Why?
@jayan Hello, it is known as hypnic headache. There are multiple reasons that you might have a headache after a nap. Breathing problems and snoring, Bruxism (teeth grinding), Pregnancy, and sleep hygiene. Treatment for a post-nap headache depends on the specific cause of the headache. Only by understanding the underlying cause can you treat it appropriately and successfully. Here are some remedies that you can try like- reducing caffeine consumption, daily exercising, limiting daytime naps, relaxation techniques, and bedtime routine. Waking up after a nap expecting to feel refreshed but instead having a headache can be frustrating at best and a sign of a serious issue at worst. It could be a symptom of any underlying condition so it is better to take healthcare help. Thank You
