Hi Thehowardhome,

Thanks for posting your query.

Headache associated with hair loss and fatigue can be due to stress,hypothyroidism,hormonal deficiencies.

First of all I would like to know some details:

1)Is the headache present throughout the day?What is the location,duration and severity of pain?
2)Are you under any kind of stress?
3)Are you taking any sort of medications or have taken in the past?(even birth control pills)
4)Are your periods normal?
5)Since how long are you having these symptoms?
6)Did you get any of your investigations as Blood Profile/Thyroid etc done in past one year?If yes any abnormalities?

Anticipating your reply and I would get back to you soon.

Hi Thehowardhome,

Thanks for the reply.

Dull temple headache present throughout the day can be due to overexertion, underactive thyroid or even high blood sugar which is quite common.
Some suggestions for you:
Temple headache can be relieved by just simple act of massaging the pain area in a kneading fashion.Practice this in a quiet relaxed place with eyes closed and without any stress several times a day.
Apply hot or cold packs for 10 to 15 minutes in a day.It helps in temple headaches.
Have XXXXXXX tea or chamomile tea 2 to 3 times.
Go for a walk or do some exercises or even stretches at home so that the oxygen supply being increased pain will be relieved.
Take Vitamin C tablet once a day for 3 months.
Keep wearing the spectacles and blink your eyes and relax them during the daytime.
Have adequate sleep of at least 7 to 8 hours.

If there is no relief or pain worsens get a Complete Blood Profile done which includes Blood Sugar and Thyroid so that the exact cause of pain can be ruled

HopeI have answered your query.I will be available for follow up query if any.
