Insomnia is nearly twice as common in women than in men, and women are more likely than men to report insomnia to their healthcare professional. A woman’s sleep is uniquely influenced by menstrual cycle, biological life stage, stress level, health, mood, parental status, work hours and other life responsibilities.
Morning headaches (not hangovers) are most likely tension headaches. The explanation is often your sleep position. You may be using too many pillows, for example, which can strain your neck muscles.
