Default all of a sudden, header takes up half of each page

Two other things you could check:

Is it possible that you have added a number of empty paragraphs in the header?
To check this, select View Header and Footer. Show formatting marks to
make paragraphs marks visible (click the ¶ icon in the Standard toolbar).
Delete the empty paragraphs if found (one will remain).

If you do not find a series of empty paragraphs, check whether extra space
has been added after the single, empty header paragraph (Format Paragraph
Indents and Spacing tab Spacing After).
