The upcoming weekend marks the end of Daylight Saving Time, and while many people are looking forward to getting an extra hour of sleep, the change can also bring on some health problems.
The so-called cluster headaches typically start a few days after the time change, tend to happen daily and around the same time each day and are more common in men than women.
According to doctors at the Cleveland Clinic, the cluster headaches are not brought on by food, hormone changes or stress.
"These attacks, which occur every day, occur for six to eight weeks and then go away in a cluster cycle. They cluster, that's why it's called cluster, and it looks like you can actually trigger a cycle by switching the time with Daylight Savings Time," said Dr. Stewart Tepper.
Experts say if you tend to experience a cluster of headaches every few months, and they happen at the same time each day, you might want to see a doctor.
