Ok, so I haven't seen my PCP for a while and just last week I saw her because I have been having horrible headaches. I went to the ER because they were so bad! The ER told me oh they are just tension or migraines, we can't really tell. I was like oh thats nice and your an ER???? Well when I went to my PCP the other day she asked if I had sleep apnea and I asked her what's that? So she explained it to me and told me that it could be the cause of my headaches due to lack of oxygen getting to my brain, and one of the many signs that I do have is enlarged tonsils, I have had them since I was a kid! I remember the Docs always telling my mom her tonsils are enlarged and she would tell them they're always like that. So anyways, I was wondering if anyone else has been DX with sleep apnea and what could help me with it so my headaches go away! I have headaches about 6/7 days of the week! Any suggestions?

I also have sleep apnea and am using a cpap machine, but unlike lori57703, my headaches went away when I started using it. Sometimes even now if for whatever reason I sleep without my machine I will get the headache back. Good luck.
