Dear *****ient, the headaches associated with weakness can have several causes.
The first cause is due to anxiety and stress, which release hormones that generate increased tension producing frequent headaches associated with weakness.
Lack of sleep generates brain overactivity during rest, which depletes the metabolic activity when it should be resting, generating greater exhaustion and making those susceptible to having a headache.
These conditions are what impress in your case are affecting what generates physical wear.
So I suggest a hematological control, lower the level of anxiety, and can not fall asleep I suggest going to a consultation to indicate medicamentto to domir.
I recommend doing outdoor physical activity these will lower the stress.

I think that in your case you should not be alarmed but I suggest you discard those conditions otherwise the hematological studies should be carried out.
For pain I suggest tylenol every 8 hours.
and you can take natural medication for sleep which will not affect you and relax like Valeriana,

I did have those done and everything is normal

Then it confirms that it is due to stress and anxiety, I would suggest some medication to be able to sleep like clonazepam. but you must go to a consultation

The stress and anxiety would also cause the chemically off feeling?
Neurologist: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 1 month ago

Yes, since stress and anxiety release stress hormones such as noradrenaline and cortisol which can generate those sensations.

OK so you don’t think it would be anything like a brain tumor or leaking aneurysm
Neurologist: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 1 month ago

no, because there is a history of stress and anxiety, if this does not improve it may suggest a cranial CT

Ok. So beyond trying to manage the stress and anxiety there is no worries about anything more serious?
Neurologist: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 1 month ago
