I suffer from the Sunday Headache. Right now I have a headache. It has always been a little bit of a joke and I haven't given it much thought until recently. While visiting my family over the break I confessed to my mom one rainy Sunday afternoon that I had an epic head splitting Sundayche. She shot back, "What! Your dad has a headache every Sunday too." "No!" I shrieked. Total truth. This, along with an allergy to the beach, is my all-time favorite genetic inheritance (disorder).

Today I am in Phoenix defrosting and delaying my homework, and finally Googled "I have a headache every sunday". Though I could not find an official medical response I discovered that the Sundayche is not so uncommon. The answer? Precisely what my dear friend Kimmybot hypothesized, weekly shock to my biological clock. I am busy, not overwhelmingly so, but my plate is considerably full Monday through Saturday and when I finally settle down for a day and sleep later than is probably healthy, my mind and body panic.

I like this answer and I'm sticking with it, but a few gaps remain; why did I have a Sundayche while visiting my family in Oregon and far from busy? Am I crazy? Did I expect the pain and bring it upon myself? Do I have any brain doctor friends who might provide me a logical answer? Preferably one living in Reykjavik who also has connections to national tourism councils? Thanks.

I get horrid headaches once a week too...not on Sunday though. I think it's true that when you get a chance to settle down you get a horrid headache. I find a huge thing of caffeine helps.

And how to reconcile your theory of Sundayaches with headaches of your father, who is far from not busy on Sunday?

I get really bad Sundayches 2-3 times a year. I don't really get headaches regularly, but I will get 2-3 migranes a year and always on Sunday. I always blamed it on low blood sugar or staying up too late on Saturday night. However, I often stay up too late and do not get headaches. Who knew, I was not alone? I like the theory of the system panicking.
