Thanks for staying Online.

I am posting my answer below-

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem

Well, such symptoms can occur due to few factors. These are-
-High blood pressure
-Sleep disturbances
-Also Anxiety, stress, depression, excess coffee, alcohol can cause morning headaches.
-Eye strain from excess usage of computer can cause morning headache.

If you have these symptoms for long time, then you need to get a consultation with doctor for examination, investigations to get the precise diagnosis.
You may be advised MRI to rule out neurological factors like growth. Also sleep study can be advised for diagnosis.

Tension headache is the most common type of headache.It can be caused by tightened muscles in the back of the neck and scalp or in most cases the cause is unknown.
If this is tension headache, then they often respond well to massage therapy and stress reduction techniques such as breathing exercises and meditation.

You can Try to rest in a dark, quiet room . You can place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp.

You should Get enough sleep.

I would recommend that you visit your primary doctor for evaluation and get it managed.

Hope this helped
