Hi doctor,

I am a 19-year-old female with a weight of 115 kilograms and a height of five feet. I suffer from headaches and chest pain from time to time. I have some issues with my eating habits. Sometimes I have the urge to eat a lot. But I end up puking everything. Sometimes I do not eat for a week due to a lack of appetite. I have never checked my health and I have issues due to my headache. My scalp seems to be itchy and painful. Sometimes it hurts a lot when I contact the water. When I checked my skin problems, the doctor told me that it occurs due to extreme stress. I tend to hurt myself physically to reduce stress. This is my main concern.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Along with stress, you can have other reasons for having headaches. As you do not eat well, you can have a vitamin deficiency and so it can cause headaches in you. Itchy scalp and rashes can occur due to dandruff or infection and you need to treat them accordingly. I suggest you use an antidandruff shampoo three times a week. Keep your scalp clean and use fresh towels. For the headache, you can take tablet Paracetamol 650 mg once a day after taking food, tablet Multivitamin 500 mg once a day in the evening after taking food, and take tablet Pantoprazole 40 mg once a day before taking food in the morning. Take these medicines for five days.


The Probable causes:

You have stress.

Investigations to be done:

You need to do CBC (complete blood count).

Differential diagnosis:

You have an itchy scalp.

Probable diagnosis:

You have a headache.

Treatment plan:

You can take a multivitamin tablet, Paracetamol tablet, and tablet Pantoprazole.

Preventive measures:

Try to take enough rest.
