Headaches wake me up every few hours

I can't sleep more than maybe 3-4 hours before I wake up with this horrible frustrated/agitated/uncomfortable feeling, like sleep is the absolute last thing I want to do, even though I'm very tired. Along with that I'll have this sore feeling, mainly in my head and in the backs of my hands. It will take hours before this feeling goes away and I can go back to sleep. What's up with that?


I've had a similar feeling before, like when I'd get frustrated because I wouldn't stop doing a boring task, or like how I get really uncomfortable when people talk about blood. It's only in the last week or so that I've been unable to sleep through the night.

I'm 24, female.
