What might cause dry itchy dark patch, itchy breast, itchy rash on back waist area, sudden weight gain, feeling full, daily headaches. And more.

See a physician ASAP: I realize that you are suffering, but you are not giving me enough details to give you specific advice. Itchy rashes can be associated with some weight gain if there is some swelling. However, daily headache, feeling lightheaded are not part of it. Also, collapse and pain, and more are too broad terms that need to be evaluated in more detail. Start by seeing your primary care physician asap!

Various causes: There are various causes of itchy skin without a rash including dry skin, liver problems, kidney disease, medications, thyroid disorders, etc. Obviously if your symptoms are very uncomfortable a checkup is advised.
