Headaches from too much sleep

I always get headaches in the morning if I sleep more than 9 hours. I've tried Googling but I can't seem to get a clear answer on what causes this.

I try to prevent it by not oversleeping, but last night was the end of a really hectic week. I went to bed at 1 AM, woke up at noon, and since then I've been experiencing a behind-the-eyes, between-the-nose kinda headache. It's almost similar to a hangover.

Does anyone know a good way to get rid of this? I've drunk about 2-3 glasses of water since waking to avoid dehydration, had a cup of coffee, eaten some whole-wheat raisin bread, took a hot shower, and I've even taken some Tylenol, but nothing's working.

Short of going back in time and waking up earlier, how do I get rid of this?

ETA: I made myself a green smoothie with spinach, bananas, strawberries, rice milk, mango nectar, and ground flax, and holy crap, no more headache. Maybe I just needed healthy sugars?
