Thanks for writing again.
Smoking itself aggravates headache and sleeplessness. Being in stress and anxiety further adds to your problem. It is best to consult as psychotherapist for proper management.
Without knowing the exact cause of your headache and without a physical examination, it is inappropriate and unethical to prescribe any medicines.
Hope my answer is helpful.
