Headaches : Headaches and ringing in the ears, and lightheadedness, can be caused by viral, central nervous system, or other causes. If a patient feels light headed then they should be sure they have eaten a high protein meal and are well hydrated. Ideally, patient's should eat 4-5 high protein meals a day. The patient should be resting and exerting themselves. If the symptoms persist then the patient should consult their physician for an evaluation.
