In brief: Time of headache

Few people wake with a muscle tension headache or get awakened by a muscle tension headache.
Avoid light and loud noises, basically all stimulus. If she wakes with headaches i would be thinking more than muscle tension though they also can be very painful.

In brief: Could be TMJ/TMD

This could be a case of tmj/tmd.
