In brief: See a counselor or
And/or psychiatrist.
Although it would be best to start with the pcp. Often stress is the cause of nightmares. Anxiety and depression may be an issue. Headaches can be a manifestation of depression. A thorough history should also be obtained by this persons primary physician to assess for other factors such a excessive alcohol consumption.
