Suffering from headaches, being cold, exhausted and experiencing nausea can suggest a number of different medical complaints, especially if you have been suffering with these problems for an extended period of time. Because of this, it’s essential that you do further research for a diagnosis, or that you see a doctor.

There are websites that have been written by medical professionals, allowing you to conduct self diagnosis. One such example is www.netdoctor.co.uk, which is an online community that allows patients who are suffering from undiagnosed health problems to ask questions that will be answered by practicing doctors. If this wasn’t enough, there are comprehensive factsheets that offer information on the symptoms and treatments of thousands of different conditions that don’t just relate to aches and pains, but to common issues such as depression, cancer, your skin and hair, the heart, the mouth and other vital organs around the body.

Even though the Internet can be a good way to put our mind at ease while we wait for a doctor’s appointment, you should never opt for self diagnosis over a professional opinion if you feel seriously unwell. As it is unlikely you will have training and extensive knowledge in the complicated field of medicine, there is a strong chance that you will inaccurately pinpoint your condition, and this could result in you taking treatment that won’t be effective. Worst of all, this could waste valuable time that could be invested into curing you before the illness becomes worse and far more difficult to treat, Conclusively, even though self-diagnosis can be helpful if you are suffering from headaches, feeling sick and being tired, it might not be the best option for you.

You could possibly be anemic, I get cold and tired and feel drained at times like I have no energy, or you could have poor circulation as well, and that could be the reason for your headaches.

Have you recently had your iron checked? Your iron being low can cause all these symptoms. I would call my doc and look into it soon. Until then try eating some high iron foods like cereals or broccoli.

The one person that said it was depression needs to be careful with the mental health diagnosis. Its so common for Doctor to tell people they are depressed when they can't figure out what's wrong with the patient.  I have Chiari Type I Malformation and Tethered Cord Syndrome, for a year I went to doctors with my list of symptoms, headaches, tired all the time, etc. They treated me for depresssion until the day I woke up and couldn't move my legs. I guess that gave them the one little clue I wasn't depressed and that it was something neurological... So they finally listened to me and did an MRI... After a year!!!!  They should have done the test to begin with and not used the depression out...

You should examine your diet, as this can be a cause of these particular symptoms. Check your eating all the necessary food groups, and are not missing breakfast. If you have made any changes recently e.g tried to lose weight then perhaps the changes in your diet are responsible.

I don't think it is the problem. Sometime when you are busy and stress you will get headache. My advise is:

- Drink more water - Try to relax and enjoy yourself with other

But if you still the same. You might need to see the doctor soon. I tell you want thing, it happened long time but I still remember. That man loved to eat raw meat, vegetable..! 3 or 4 years later, He felt headache. And He met with the doctor. He made an x-ray with his head. And the doctor was surprise because he saw the worm in the patient's brain. They almost covered is full brain. No one could help him so he was died after 3 or 4 days. This was sad, but it taught us to protect with our food. Because there are some bacteria in the meat and vegetable. Any way, I don't think you will meet this problem. So try to relax as much as you can.

Best wish from me.

About 90% of the headaches out there are tension headaches. Tension headaches are usually caused by the contracting of the layer of muscle around your skull, which in turn can decrease blood flow to your head. That's why you'll feel a band of pressure around your head, and that steady pain typical in tension headaches. Find out more about tension headache causes here!

Headache causes, types and treatments can get confusing. Migraine is often misdiagnosed as sinus headache, for example. A sinus headache from sinusitis happens when you get an infection and your sinuses become inflamed. You usually have other symptoms such as congestion, fever and fatigue. Read more about sinus headache now!
Clusters are another different type of headache that may not always be a headache. Rarer than migraine, and more painful, clusters usually attack men. The cause of clusters is also somewhat of a mystery. Now research, however, is giving us clues that may crack the cluster code and provide relief. Cluster headaches may be related to the sinuses, the nervous system, and serotonin. Start here to read about the cause of cluster, and then learn more about treatment! I suggest you Home remedies for headache through this you get instant of knowledge about How do you get rid of a headache ?

If I were you, I would visit a doctor as fast as possible. If the symptoms don't disappear, you might have a serious health issue. Also, I would avoid taking any meds without a prescription. At least check the info about them online (I use Canada Drugs for this purpose). I hope you'll be better soon!

I don't know, I feel like crap too. Always sick no matter what, always have a headache, never have any energy and lay in bed all day feeling helpless, and I am only 9 weeks. I am also being seen at the high risk ward because of previous serious health problems, but the doctors tell me it is NORMAL to feel this way. I have been pregnant twice and never did I feel this beat down. Oh yeah, BTW, I am also on CICP which is Colorados free health supplement plan. Could have something to do with it. They have not taken any blood or ran any tests either which is why I'm so MAD!!!!
