This whole past week I've been waking up every day to a severe headache. Probably like a 9 or 10 in a 1-10 pain scale and also when I take pain medicine or try to sleep it off it doesn't go completely away. I still have like a tiny ache in my head probably in a 2-3 scale. Does anybody have a clue of what this might be or why I might be having this pain? Does anybody know any type of home remedies or something to take the pain away? Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
Why am I having severe headaches?

Sometimes when I'm stressed, I toss in my sleep, and the way the pillow bunches up under my neck will cause pressure headaches. Where is the pain centered? Temples, behind the eyes, the back of the head? And is it a dull ache or does it feel more like pressure? Finding what kind of headache will make it easier to find a cure.0
are you getting enough fresh air?0
ive been having them too not as severe as yours, but theyre there and this happens to me every summer, its just so hot outside and sunny, I try to avoid the sun but its hard I have to go to work and school and I gym and yea the heat can be harsh on your brain
i try to stay hydrated drink lots of water
i put lemon in my water it really helps
also I try to avoid caffiene when I take caffiene like coffee it sucks up the moisture in your body and makes headaches happen more frequently I had coffee today and walked to the gym and now I have a headache...sucks!
i also wear hats to keep my head protected from the sun
too much sun exposure can cause sun strokes and migraines which make you wanna throw up and faint theyre horrible and all you can do is sleep them off

You drink lots of water to drown a cold and a headache, as Firefly267 has already stated.
You may have a blood disorder affecting blood flow to the brain and the brain cells are starved for oxygen or nutrients, such as iron.
Now, it's best to explain the whole set of issues to your doc. Don't just treat the symptoms! Find the root cause or you could be suffering for years from the same ailment and just have short-term fixes to a larger problem.0
I also used to have major headaches, maybe not so severe as that of your, but when I went to the Neurologist, he did some tests first and took a look in my head. He later pointed out that I was taking to many asprins for my headache, that by taking more of them made it worse and not better. So I stopped taking them and lived with the headaches for 2 days longer, which started to dissipate after the 3rd day.0
Well most headaches are caused by dehydration, so make sure you drink plenty of water. Other than that the best advice is to see a doctor, as headaches can be caused by many, many things.1
9 or 10 should be reserved for wounds that cut to the bone and such. I agree that you should make sure you're hydrated and go from there.0
