11. Sleep Apnea
The last possible cause of migraines and headaches is sleep apnea. When someone has sleep apnea, they stop breathing repeatedly throughout the night. When this occurs, not only are they not getting a restful night of sleep and experience sleep deprivation, but they are also experiencing low oxygen levels and high dioxide levels. People with sleep apnea often wake up with headaches and also experience loud snoring, daytime sleepiness, lack of concentration, clenching and grinding, and more. With sleep apnea treatment though, frequent headaches and migraines will become less common and in some cases become non-existent.
