You could have high blood pressure.

This can cause severe head pain.

If the doctor suggest medication take it.

Try meditation to calm yourself.

Maybe talk to your doctor about trying you on propranolol. It is a beta blocker that was originally used for high blood pressure but is also prescribed as a migraine preventative.

I am also a life long migrain sufferer.

When was your last physical exam? If you have high BP, you need to get to the root of what is causing this. The cause cannot be determined here, but it sounds like your should see a doctor and do some diagnostics, so that you will know the cause and can deal with it accoringly.

There are many causes of high BP: stress, smoking, poor eating habits, allowing yourself to be overweight or obese, eating too much salt, genetics, thyroid disorders, adrenal disorders, sleep apnea. Could be one of these things, a bunch of these things, or none of these things and caused by something else.

I would not recommend suggesting medication until you've had proper diagnosis and know if any specific medication for high BP is indicated or not. Might need to treat the underlying cause.

Hope you feel better soon!

Sleep disorders can be a root cause of headaches occurring during the night or waking you early. In many instances a lack of oxygen by your brain being deprived for long periods due to sleep apnea is a treatable condition and can lessen or eradicate the night occurring headaches. Talk to your Dr about having a sleep study.

When something bad happens to you, you can let it destroy you, let it define you, or you can let it strengthen you.
