Hello Young Lady: I've missed you stopping by to let me know how things've been going. Wanna go over your headache diary some time? I believe I sent you one, no? Hope you're not working in those hot places anymore. Headaches get significantly worse for every 7 degrees F elevation in temperature. Headaches upon awakening can point to something called hypnopompic type and that could point to something important.
