  • Do you have a sinus infection? Drainage (a lovely thought) can cause you to be nauseous, and an infection can give you a major headache. Are you pregnant? Hormones can cause both of those.

  • pregnancy? lol....the lighting in the room maybe....but also smells that you arent aware of, so buy some air-neutralizer, and even some light-fragrant air freshner. You may also want to make sure your house isnt leaking carbon monoxide, the symptoms of early poisoning are fatigue, headache and nausea. You can buy a detector at home-improvement stores (Lowes, Home Depot), but Wal-Mart may carry them as well.

  • It sounds like sinuses...If you house is dry, you can dehydrate during the night, and that can cause headaches.

  • I had the same problem and swore to my husband if we got pregnant 3 months after our son was born I was going to kill him... turns out it was a double ear infection.

  • Could be low blood sugar. Try eating protein before bed. Like a hard boiled egg.
