Your spine could be out a little. Our bodies move several times a night and one can toss and turn especially under stress. Even curled up in a fetal position can cause pinching of the nerves in the spine. These nerves are connected up through the neck to the facial area and head. If it goes away soon after you wake up and doesn't occur often then it's due to the way you are sleeping. I use a foam roll about 4 inches wide and 8 inches long and put inside the pillow case between the pillow case and pillow. This roll cups the neck while sleeping and can eliminate a lot of these problems.
