...why when you get more/better sleep, do you feel like shit? I managed to get 9.5 hours uninterrupted sleep last night and woke up feeling like I'd had none..!

... how do you shift a shitty headache that's sitting on your forehead?

Co-codamol and plenty of water.

Have already taken 2 paracetamol at about 830 and 2 ibuprofen about 10 mins ago WhyCantIuseTheNameIWant and it hasn't helped sad

Yes, sometimes.

Feet in warm water, cold compress on your head. Draws the blood away from your feet which eases the pressure.

The only thing that helps me when I wake up with an horrible headache is loads of water. No tea/coffee/juice, just drink loads of water.

I always wake up with a headache if I sleep late.

I'm not really sure why, but in your case could it be dehydration?

9.5 hours is a long time to go without a drink, and the nights aren't cold either so maybe you need to replace what you sweated out?

I think it depends what part of the sleep cycle you woke up in. So if you were in stage 4 or REM, you will feel worse. I was told this in a stress control workshop on sleep.

I woke up under my own steam this morning for a change. So not sure about what stage?

Am drinking cups of hot water. Also quite thirsty today too.

I just want to go home and sleep.

Can you get some lucosade?

That might help.

The fact you are drinking loads and still thirsty could be highlighting something?

Try eating something with a bit of salt in. Buttered toast?
And drink something with sugar in.

It's weird that it feels like you can have "too much" sleep.

But, it does sound like you're dehydrated. How's your wee looking? Drink drink drink smile

Wee is almost clear.

WIBU to ask to go home from work? A colleague has just walked past and said I look awful envy
