Getting Headaches? You Can't Sleep on It
- Cluster headaches usually occur at night as a stabbing pain on one side of
the head, lasting up to an hour. They may recur frequently.
- A new study shows that a sleeping disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea
may trigger the onset of cluster headaches.
- Sleep apnea often goes undiagnosed, but researchers believe that treatment
of this disorder could be an important way to reduce cluster headaches.
