Customer Question

from time to time I wake up from a very deep sleep with a splitting headache and feeling very strange and disorientated. The feeling can last all day, and I have no appetite. My husband died earlier in the year, but a few months before he died he told me that one night he had tried to rouse me from a deep sleep but was unable to, and thought I was having some kind of fit, so as I've just had another such episode I'm getting quite concerned.
