Hypoglycemia: It might be a sign of low blood sugar during sleeping. Please consult with your doctor, as your medications need to be modified accordingly

Could be anything: It is difficult to say without more information and examination. It could be a tension headache, migraines, due to poor eyesight or something more sinister such as a small tumor. In short you need to see a Dr who will take a history and perform an examination, if needed you will be referred for a CT scan as well.
