Complicated question: All of your symptoms may or may not be related. Headaches could be tension HA and/or migraine. Dizziness could be due to anxiety and hyperventilation or other causes. Difficulty falling asleep likely due to anxiety. Problem staying asleep(early awakening)likely >depression. Sleeping pills not a good idea. Discuss these symptoms with your Dr or arrange a Virtual Consultation>http://bit.ly/1OiIRcI
