Hi,

Nightmares indicate an anxiety disorder.

If you have flashbacks, anxiety attacks associated with the nightmares and if they are related to past abuse that you have been subjected to then you might be suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Your one sided headaches especially while reading or watching TV sounds like a classic case of migraine. You should check your vision.

Have a full psychiatric evaluation done by a psychiatrist.
