    I'll say again... if you can't pin it down to other life circumstances that readily explain... get to a doctor... headache, nausea and "fogginess" or disorientation later can be serious... like encephalitis/tumor. Initially, the only symptoms are after laying down a long time... depending. Its unlikely but I sure wouldn't mess around trying to figure it out. It does bother you enough to post.

    Do you feel sleepy near the end of the day? Could be sleep apnea. That is basically when you stop breathing throughout the night.

    If it is sleep apnea you can sometimes fix it by losing weight. Other times you need a CPAP to help you breathe. There are also surgical options. But breathing is good, not breathing is generally bad. You should definately see your doctor.

    Yes, you may suffer from caffeine withdrawal, do the symptoms go away after you have a coffee?

    Bloody hell, I didn't expect this much coverage.

    1) I'm a guy, so I'm obviously not pregnant
    2) They're very temporary; the nausea stays for about five minutes, then goes (not long enough to be serious, but still long enough to be concerned about), and the head aches normally no more than ten minutes (normally five)

    I eat regular amounts every day, but sometimes I'll skip a few meals and eat irregularly (for example, I'll get up and eat nothing for three or four hours - once I got up at 1pm and didn't eat until 7pm).

    I still think it's post nasal drip while you're sleeping.

    Take an antihistamine/decongestant tonight - if you are medically able - and if the symptoms do not occur in the morning, it's probably post nasal drip.

    Do you have allergies, or do you live in a place where spring has sprung?

    I'm not a real doctor, but I pretend to be on the forums sometimes....

    These possibilities come to mind:

    1. Dehydration
    2. Hypoglycemia
    3. Sleep apnea (as mentioned already)
    4. Effects of or withdrawal from alcohol, caffeine, nicotine
    5. Low levels of carbon monoxide in your room
    6. Brain tumor, seizures, or other neurological causes

    What are two and three? And how do you get more carbon monoxoide to stay in your room?

    I'm not sure if you're joking, but seeing as you're an ENTJ, you're probably not.

    Post nasal drip is the opposite of a runny nose. Instead of dripping out your nose, it runs down the back of your throat and tickles it. You have to clear your throat a lot. It can make you cough, depending on the level of severity.

    Antihistamine/Decongestant is what you find in Sudafed PE for Sinus and Allergy.
    Over the counter cold medicines tell you on the front label if these are in them.

    If you don't have allergies and you're not having spring yet, then it could be a virus. Or you may be developing an intolerance to some allergens. I know dust in my house bothers me when it didn't used to.

    Sounds like sinus problems. Try taking one Claritin tablet every day and see if it improves.

    The headache comes from sleeping with the head lower down in relation to the body and the nausea is from the junk draining to your stomach. You may not even have any nasal issues during the day for this to be the culprit.

    Just my two cents - but do go to a doctor.

    2. hypoglycemia: low blood glucose (glucose = brain fuel)
    3. sleep apnea: brief periods of not breathing while sleeping

    You don't want any carbon monoxide in any room. High levels will cause severe symptoms or death, but low levels might cause your symptoms. You could get a carbon monoxide detector with a digital readout, but since you're having symptoms, you should call the the fire department or a HVAC professional to check this.
