Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity at tolerated.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I've been having headaches anywhere from 1-4 days a week, sometimes in a row. Along with feeling light headed and tired. Could stress cause this?

It can also affect the way we sleep which can have an effect on headaches. It is important that you talk with your doctor about your headaches. You may need to be on a preventive medication for a period of time. ...Read more

I have been doing this vegtiable, fruit, 7 day detox, and I am on day 3. I feel kind of light headed and tired. Why? And what cabn I do to fix it?

Sugar Alone?: I am sure you are smart enough to know that these dangerous fad diets are just that: dangerous and fads. If you are not eating proteins your immune system get's weaker and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Proteins are the building blocks for muscles, hormones, enzymes that keep the kidneys, brain, liver and heart healthy. Any diet that is 100% sugars is bad and unhealthy. It is not a cleanse. ...Read more

I suspect not!

Possibly anemia: Anemia in an otherwise young, healthy person would be pretty uncommon. It would cause the symptoms you describe, however. Malnutrition, certain viral infections (e.g. Ebv), hypothyroidism are some other possibilities. I would have a check up with your primary care doc as this certainly sounds abnormal. ...Read more

Head a headache for 2days. Sharp pains sometimes when i move. Feel bit light headed. Tired. And felt sick with it last night. Should i go doctors. ?

Your call: Doesn't sound like you have anything terrible going on, but i don't know if you have any other symptoms or chronic medical conditions that put you at higher risk. A few causes might be dehydration, stress, diet (e g caffeine, blood sugar), sleep issues, viral infection (e g flu, cold), sinus infection, etc... Would rest, hydrate, take otc meds, and see a doc if fever over 101 or symptoms linger. ...Read more
