I'm suffering from headaches and lightheadedness almost every day. I get up in the morning and then either I am dizzy or not that day. I know first thing in the morning, or soon thereafter how the day will be. Then, as I continue to stand or sit-up the headache gets worse and worse until I cannot tolerate it any more. I have to lay down. I feel much better when I lay down. Strangely, I have a small acoustic neuroma, 1.2 cm at it's biggest point, and a small cyst around it. I have been told time and time again that an acoustic neuroma does not cause headaches. I've been told the cyst has nothing to do with anything. So, if not that, what in the world could cause these kinds of headaches where you can't stand up?

  • Have you had a spinal tap or punture recently? If so, sounds like a spinal headache
