Hypnic Headache

My symptoms are:

Hypnic Headache develops while I'm actually sleeping 2 to 3 times a week. They typically last until late afternoon.  Nothing will relieve it, not even prescription for a migraine. I usually will get the headache after a day of being somewhat active.

If I sit home all day, my symptoms improve tremendously and I won 't get the hypnic headache at night.

During the day when I stand/walk more then a few minutes, I get lightheaded which then leads to nausea, abdominal pain, right arm/hand pain, numbness in left foot. My bladder/colon/stomach are often numb when I'm active.  When I sit home for a day or more, the numbness improves a lot along with everything else.

Riding in a car will also aggravate my symptoms a lot.

Abdominal CT Scan came back normal a week ago.

I have been getting worse....a lot worse the last month.  I'm supposed to see a Neurologist...waiting for them to call to set up the appointment ordered by my doctor.

Any ideas of what this could be?  Frankly, I'm getting scared the way this is progressing.

Thank you.

Scott
