Have headaches, anemia, numbness. What is wrong?

my therapist said its probably past life, I think he s just being nice so I won t lose my mind. I m seventeen and it seems like this started last year of Feb. I started having these dreams that felt like it happened before, but I coulda sworn it has happened before. When I wake in the morning I have these horrible headaches that last all throughout the day. I can t think, but somehow I end up passing quizzes I never even studied for, yeah that part is nice, but I wish the numbness would go away. But it refuses to. I thought it was my anemia kicking in. But it isn t and now, I freak out more about life each and everyday. That I end up thinking that death is just gunna take me over, and soon I ll be nothing but a body. I wrote in my journal and my mom says there s nothing wrong, she doesn t believe me... And then I start to feel more and more, on my own. I wish My Dr. was right, that it s just past life taking affect, but I seem to doubt him very much, but who don t I doubt. I just wish i could be a regular teen. And be able to do the stuff others do, could that be it? I get the feeling that I m invisincable. That i can do anything. I don t know what to do and... it scares me... I need help..

Welcome to HealthCare Magic
Hope you are doing good. If you’re waking up in pain, there are several possible culprits. Migraines are more likely to happen in the morning and as you have mentioned your symptoms i feel its because of your stress. Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way.
Stress isn’t always bad. In small doses, it can help you perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best. But when you’re constantly running in emergency mode, your mind and body pay the price. You can protect yourself by recognizing the signs and symptoms of stress and taking steps to reduce its harmful effects.
Try to over come over your stress , Learn how to manage stress , Learn how to relax. You did not mentioned what type of anemia do you have , Sickle cell anemia , Iron-deficiency anemia , Vitamin deficiency , blood loss etc. Usually numbness are among the sign of Anemia. try to take healthy rich iron diet. Find out the cause of Anemia by doing some lab investigations. Then do let us know our counsel with your family physician for further guidance.
I hope have answered your query feel free to ask him you have any query. wish you good health Regards.

Psychiatrist Dr. Payman Hajiazim's  Response
Hi there, thanks for asking. Those things could be related to anemia. Headaches and numbness are commonly seen in anemic people. If it has been corrected, still can cause restless legs for you. Many anemia cases are treated in a way that their iron level become normal but in the lower limit of the normal. That can cause restless legs which can affect your sleep and cause headaches in the morning as well. I wish you a good health.
