Every morning when I wake up I feel heaviness in my head. The heaviness generally occurs in the right half of my head. Due to this heaviness I generally have slight to severe headache in the morning hours. I feel a typical weakness in my head and sleepy in the morning hours till 3 pm. The situation improves after 3 pm. The situation in the morning hours so severe that I sometimes I fell asleep while working in the office. During sleepy hours my eyes are watery also. Please advice treatment as I'm struggling with this problem.

Dear your symptoms are descriptive of what we call as obstructive sleep apnea. Check whether you are snoring from your family members as you may not be aware of. You are overweight and it contributes to the above. This condition disturbs sleep at night and hence you feel heaviness in head after waking up and feel sleepy in the working hours. Stop alcohol if any start doing regular walking check complete hemogram and TSH and sugars check your blood pressure all these are must finally for confirmation you need sleep study (poly somnography) which confirms your problem. With positive attitude you get these tests and I will guide accordingly.
