Can you diagnose this?

unusual headaches, slight dizziness, face abnormally warm, body feels weaker, and slight spacing out or slower processing ability..
My headaches started 2 weeks ago. at first i thought it was just normal headaches every once in a while but now i have one EVERY day.. dizziness comes more from the feeling of being weak or tired.. and head hurts when looking at a screen or even just looking up at a bright sky :/

You don't mention your age, or any existing medical concerns...other than headaches, so it is hard to say. I am a Paramedic, and can tell you without more information, it would be nearly impossible to correctly advise.

My first thought though, was that you sound as though you are coming off some kind of medication and suffering withdrawal. It would explain the "spaciness, headache, even dizziness, depending upon the medication you are withdrawing from. Nearly ALL meds need to be slowly reduced to stop taking them. In all cases, you will experience the effects of "withdrawal."

Another concern, would be your blood pressure, which could be affected by a variety of conditions. Light-sensitivity is a result of a neurological symptom...like migraines, anemia, and even early-onset of diabetes. Are you drinking a lot of water and feeling thirsty a lot?

I agree with the need for you to be seen by a physician...especially if this persists even longer, since you said it's already been going on for two weeks!

BTW...what do we get for the "right" answer? LOL

You could be anaemic which means you have low levels of iron in your body, try eating more red meats, vegetables such as spinach, lettuce, broccoli also apples and tomatoes. Hope this helps

Kind of sounds like a cold or the flu, except for the part that it started 2 weeks ago.

You could be having a lingering migraine headache, you could have the flu, you could have severe eye strain.

I would strongly suggest you make an appointment with your doctor right now. You'll get a proper diagnosis from someone who knows what they're talking about. :-)

Go!! Get on the phone and call your doc!! :-)

what if you are a doctor like me
Report as
well, ok you got me there. but the protocol for most doctors is to see the patient before saying what it might be/is.
Report as
you are very right but I have to disagree I tell people some illnesses then I tell them to go to there regular doctor
Report as
If you really were a doctor then you ould know that a subjective complaint rarely provides enough information. And that an assessment would be needed to enable you to offer a diagnosis.

you can say anything you would like

i am also offering my opinion which some people need from a REAL doctor!

Yes a real doctor, with a real medical license, performing a real examination, and running real tests. Not an anonymous person who may or may not be a real doctor. Yes you can say anything you would like. But there comes a point of responsibility. Just because you can do a thing doesn't mean you should. And if you were a real doctor you would know that you have a greater reponsibility to patient safety. You might be a real doctor, but you don't talk the talk. And you don't walk the walk. I've learned that if it doesnt look like a duck or walk like a duck, or swim like a duck it might not be a duck. Even if it quacks.

sounds like your anaemic or your blood pressure is off track. Both can make you feel that way. See a doctor to be safe though.

This could very well be Lyme Disease all of those issues are the symptoms of Lyme and it can be treated. Many doctors treat Lyme Disease I would talk to your doctor about this it could be many different illnesses. Good Luck and feel better!

You see part of a thorough assessment involves looking at both subjective and objective data. Subjective is what the patients says. And it is useful but it only paints a very small part of the bigger picture of what is going on. There is objective finding such as are revealed in a detailed physical examination, and is supplemented by the results of any diagnostic procedures or tests such as blood tests and whatever else might be indicated. The bottom line is this isn't enough information to provide a meaningful assessment. You should consult a physician if you want an actual diagnosis.
