In brief: Get pro-active

See your doctor and find out if you have migraine or another cause of head pain.
The headache can disrupt your sleep pattern, and may be best treated by using a preventative agent.

In brief: Relaxation for both

Headaches like trouble sleeping can be caused by many things.
Tension ( anxiety ) can make either worse and pain can worsen sleep and difficulty sleeping can worsen headaches . See your doctor to rule out medical causes ( such as sleep apnea, thyroid problems , medications )and then try to learn relaxation techniques which can help alone or in concert with medication . Good luck
