Really bad headaches everyday

Hello. I have been getting really bad headaches for the past week or so. I don't have any stress in my life so I know its not stress related so I was wondering what could be causing these daily headaches. I have a couple of theories...First is that i recently started getting coffee alot and by the time the afternoon comes my head hurts really badly so i havent been drinking coffee for the past week so I wouldn't be dependent of it to relieve my headache but I still get them even though coffee hasn't been in me for a week or so. Second, I barely drink water which I just noticed today, so can a lack of water cause these daily extreme headaches? Third, I have been waking up every morning with neck pain from my pillow which I am probably going to go get a new one but can neck pain and stiffness cause headaches too? Lastly, currently I have a swollen left lymph node in my neck which has been swollen for the past 20 days and it could just be coincidental but the headaches started about the time it starting getting inflamed. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank You!

You might be going through withdrawal from the lack of coffee if you were a devout drinker before you quit. Dehydration can definitely cause headaches, so start drinking a lot more water. And make sure that it's water, not soda or coffee/tea as those can actually dehydrate you further.

A new pillow would probably also be really smart.

I would also recommend that you see a doc about the swollen lymph node, just to rule out anything serious.
