Brief Answer:
Anemia or hypothyroidism could be the reason

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir, Hi
Good afternoon.
I can understand your concern.

Early morning weakness associated with headache can be caused by a number of conditions like anemia, hypothyroidism, lack of sleep (sleep apnoea), anxiety or depression.

May I ask a few questions like
1. Do you smoke or take alcohol?
2. Do you get any joint pain or morning stiffness in the joints?

I would like to suggest some lab tests like CBC, ESR, & Thyroid profile.
Awaiting your kind reply.

Best regards.
