your symptoms are common for people who are having trouble grieving a significant loss, so know that you are not alone. The good news is that psychotherapy (from a psychologist, licensed professional counselor or licensed social worker) has an excellent chance to help you grieve, learn to manage your moods, and regain your ability to sleep. You are clearly suffering and deserve care.
You will want to make an appointment with your primary care physician to determine if you are in fact having migraines. Your primary care doctor will be able to assess your symptoms and determine how best to manage them (because migraines have to do with blood vessel pressure changes in the brain, they are treated differently from stress/tension headaches). During your appointment, ask your physician to refer you for psychotherapy. He/She should know some clinicians who specialize in grieving.
