Hello and thank you for your question.
How is your sleeping cycle?
Do you feel rested in the morning after you wake up?
okay.One of the main reason of experiencing lack of concentration is due to not getting enough sleep.
I do have enough sleep.
Moreover if you have muscle tension headaches you need a muscle relaxant like flexiril.
Do you snore?
yes, I do snore. not always though. what is flexiril?
The reason you have muscle tension headache in the mornings is due to either insomnia or hypersomnia.
hypersomnia means too much sleep?
Felxiril is a muscle relaxant which will help to relax your muscles and would prevent the muscle tension in the morning.
is it medicine? can I buy it over the counter?
Yes it is a medicine and it is a prescription medication.
i am not sure I have too much sleep either. generally it's 8 hours. however I must admit, that I tend to sleep on my belly with my face in the pillow, I try not to do it, but this is most comfortable for me and I tend to do it while asleep or in order to fall asleep.
so when you sleep that way you do not get enough oxygen and that can cause muscle stiffness thus giving you tension headaches.
Try changing positions. Apply moist heat to your neck and head before going to sleep that can help to relax the muscles.
I wrote a note about the medicine, will try to get the prescription for it. what about vitamins, can they help? which ones?
As you are getting in mornings it is related to your sleep patterns.
Vitamins may not help as you do not have numbness and tingling but just muscle tension.
Good sleeping position can ease the tension and moist heat.
In fact I do have numbness and tingling, I just forgot to mention it
You can take vitamin B12.
