MONTGOMERY, Ohio (Liz Bonis) -- Days after we fall back to end daylight saving time might be a real headache. Medical Reporter Liz Bonis explains why in Thursday's Health Alert. As we end daylight saving time this weekend and fall back to get an extra hour of sleep, most of us love that. But for some it can trigger headaches, called cluster headaches. A report from the Cleveland Clinic says this time change, and the change in circadian rhythm, is enough o trigger these in some people. They say for some these can last six to eight weeks following this time change due to the way a portion of the brain manages rhythms that influence your head. Some say they are helped by a low dose of melatonin, others need something stronger. So if you experience bad headaches at this time be sure to tell your own doctor.
