Hello Anonymous,

You should consult your physician. The cause of the onset of lightheadedness and pain in your head can be determined following a physical assessment by your physician, blood tests, and diagnostic studies, if necessary.

Lighheadedness can be simply related to a temporary shortage of blood or oxygen to the brain. This can be due to a drop in blood pressure, dehydration, low blood sugar or anemia.

Headaches range from common to serious. Tension headaches, sinus headaches and migraine headaches are common. Less commonly, a headache is a sign of a more serious condition, such as a brain tumor.

Please keep us updated.
