Headaches, nausea and fatigue

Hi,
I am a 17 year old female and I've been suffering from persistent headaches, nausea and fatigue that has been progressively getting worse for over three months now. The headaches and nausea don't seem to be connected as they can flare up seperately. I wake up with a headache every morning and it rarely goes away all day. I have pain across my forehead and behind both eyes that can occasionally spread to the back of my head. I feel nauseated in the head and the nausea seems to get worse after I have a big meal or eat something sugary. I feel tired and lethargic all he time, even after a long sleep or a few days in bed. I have been to numerous doctors and the latest thinks that I might have chronic fatigue syndrome however this does not explain all my symptoms. I have had blood test for oragn function and they came through clear. I also had a CT scan which was clear too. I had my eyes checked and I have no problems there either. I go to a chiropractor regularly so there are not any problems with my back or neck. I am doing my final year of highschool however I have had to drop out of half my subjects as I can no longer keep up with my school work. I would not say that I am under a lot of stress, however I have always placed a fair bit of pressure on myself academically.I am a happy and optimistic person, but being sick all the time is really startig to get me down. If you have any ideas as to what could be making me unwell, please share.

Thanks :)

Hello,

Headache may be primary(not associated with (caused by) other diseases) or secondary(caused by associated disease). Examples of primary headaches are migraine headaches, tension headaches, and cluster headaches.

Going by your symptoms,it looks like migraine headache to me. Migraine headaches usually are described as an intense, throbbing or pounding pain that involves temples or forehead and change sides from one attack to the next. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, facial pallor, cold hands, cold feet, and sensitivity to light and sound commonly accompany migraine headaches.

Treatment of migraine involves using a cold compress to the area of pain, resting in a room with little or no sensory stimulation (light, sound, and odors), withdrawing from stressful surroundings and sleeping. You can also try over the counter pain killers like aspirin or acetaminophen. If still the symptoms persist, then please consult a physician for specific anti-migraine therapy(triptans and ergot preparations).

Hope I have provided you with sufficient information. In case you need any more information,pls post us.
