What is the best way to diagnose acute mountain sickness? I usually get headaches, lightheadedness and occasional nausea at high elevation.

In brief: Mountain sickness

Those are exactly the symptoms you will feel at higher elevations if you can, try to move upto the higher elevations more gradually and you will accommodate a little better. Good luck.
