Can headache & sleep issues make each other worse?
Thank you for writing. I’m very concerned.
A headache on one side of the head that interferes with sleep is sometimes an indication of a serious medical problem. I’m not an M.D. and I don’t know your history so I can certainly be wrong. But if you presented these symptoms at my office, I’d be conferring with your doctor immediately about whether a CAT Scan (CT) is in order.
Please contact your Primary Care Physician right away. Please let me know what you find out.
I wish you well.
