    HI Momonica,

    Thank you for reaching out to our community and being here with us! I am sorry to hear you are having a difficult time right now – I can totally relate!

    You mentioned “tension headache” have you been diagnosed with this type of headache disorder? The reason I ask it it’s important to get an accurate headache disorder diagnosis. Here’s why – once we learn what type of headache disorder(s) we have, we can then learn about it and get the correct treatment for it. Take a look at this information on migraine diagnosis; and

    You may want to consider having a sleep study done. Many times when we wake with migraine pain, it may be an indication of a sleep disorder and not just sleep apnea. When you get a chance take a look at these articles for more information;
    I don’t have sleep apnea, but do have restless leg and periodic limb movement disorder. I’m getting better sleep and have reduced the days I wake up with a migraine.

    Here is information on tension type headache I hope helps;

    Let me know what you think,
