Suggest treatment for sleeplessness and headaches

I'm a 51 year old made. I am a notoriously poor sleeper; 4 or 5 hours a night. Recently, I've developed headaches that feel very much like numbness...pins and needles sensations in the middle of my head. I usually take an extra strength Exederin and feel better but I notice they appear to be more frequent lately.

Hi,

There might be many factors leading to frequent headaches episodes, including:
- oscillations in blood pressure/sugar
- stress/work overload
- drinking alcohol, energetic drinks, coffee (especially in the afternoon)

I advise to:
- monitor your blood pressure/sugar, record the results for future evaluation
- try to make breaks while working
- have some chamomile/valeriana sleeping mixture tea especially before going to bed
- keep exercising
- avoid alcohol, energetic drinks, coffee

If no improvement, should consult a neurologist for further evaluation and proper treatment.

Hope it was of help!
