This is my third or fourth week, at least, of waking up to a headache/migraine on Saturday. I'm tired of not being able to enjoy my Saturday.

If I have a constant headache, it is usually helped by a trip to the chiropractor. I don't go often, but it really helps me. Also, a migraine may be triggered by sinus pressure. You might try a decongestant.

I think it was cus I was not getting enough sleep during the wk. Then I slept longer...a lot longer.. on Saturday and woke up w/ a headache. I try to sleep a bit more regular now and it helps.
Another possible cause of mine: When I was younger, I sometimes went to Friday night parties and drank.
Sorry you are feeling bad. Maybe try eating something super healthy...I have actually drank V-8's ( high in salt, not super healthy either) that have helped headaches.
Migraines are probably way different though! It stinks not being able to enjoy your Sats for sure! I hope you get to feeling better soon!:

Examine possible triggers. Dehydration from a week of not drinking enough water. Specific Friday night food or drink? My relatives go for pizza every Friday night.

So sorry. Migraines are horrible. Once I found my triggers, things got much better, but sadly not everyone can eliminate their triggers.

Maybe it's your body's way of telling you to rest.

If I started having a headache/migraine on Saturday mornings and suspected that they were primarily due to the stress of my job, this is what I would do. I would plan not to do any school-related work on Friday or Saturday and spend no more than 2 hours working on Sunday.

1) Leave school 30 minutes after students are dismissed for the day.

2) Immediately do something physical: go work out at the gym, go for a run or 30-minutes of a brisk walk, go for a swim, etc.

3) Go home take a bath/shower, lie down and listen to some relaxing music.

4) Go out for dinner with friend(s) or family.

5) Remember no work in the evening or tomorrow!

Let me know if this works for you.

Caffeine?

Dehydration and caffeine withdrawal triggers ROARING migraines in my husband.

My husband's triggers...

Dehydration (sleeping longer)
Caffeine (You get coffee at 7am, but Saturday sleep until 10 am-this triggers a drop to knees migraine for him.)
Release of stress...

I do not understand how release of stress triggers a head ache. The neurologist at the big deal migraine clinic told me this is true. My husband has anxiety issues. Stressful work week or a big deal happy event---->seems to handle those beautifullly. The next day when pressure is "off", BANG! roaring level 8 to 10 migraine that nothing can touch it. Happened the day after Halloween.

I use I had some helpful advice about the release of stress migraines, but I don't. Until my husband works on his anxiety issues, I don't think much will help that trigger.

Oh...blood sugar drops trigger his head aches too. Maybe a little more protein before bed might help.
