Thanks for posting your query.
Your symptoms could be due to varied causes like low blood pressure, hormonal imbalance ( thyroid disorder etc), nutritional deficiency , Hematologic disorder( malignancies,bleeding disorders or other blood dyscrasias) or a chronic infection like tuberculosis ( loss of appetite and weight loss.
Now to confirm the cause and severity of the problem it's very important to get yourself thoroughly examined by your doctor ( blood pressure , signs of nutritional deficiency or bleeding tendencies etc) & if needed a baseline investigation ( blood counts , ESR , thyroid profile etc) should be done.
This will help in confirming the diagnosis according to which further steps of treatment can be taken.
Yes , you do seem to be underweight but not malnourished . I assume your loss of weight and appetite are recent complaints ( less than a couple of months ) which could itself give rise to dizziness , headaches etc It would be wise not to neglect these symptoms any further and consult your doctor for a thorough evaluation and management .
Meanwhile you should try to avoid stress, caffeine and alcoholic beverages , and prolonged fasting to decrease your symptoms. Drink plenty of fluids to improve hydration which will help in decreasing dizziness too. Eat small frequent meals XXXXXXX in fruits (especially citrus fruits XXXXXXX in vitamin c )& vegetables . Your doctor might prescribe a daily multivitamin and calcium supplement if required.
Yoga or breathing exercises can be very helpful in the long run.

Hope I have answered your query.
Kindly accept my answer if you have no further queries.

I am 26 years old. Female. & have a couple concerns. Fr a little while now I have been extremely tired. Several months. With that I have EXTREME constipation like 10-20 days with no BM. Also I have gained about thirty pounds in a matter of two months and cannot seem to get it off. I have dark circles under my eyes as well. I have not had a cycle in over two months. I am not pregnant. I had blood work down to look at my thyroid and the TSH was 1.82. My primary said that was normal. My WBC was 4.3 and the RDW was 11.4%. Also my ast 33 and alt 32. I am really tired of being so tired. I generally run a high pulse in the 100s. Can sleep all day. Lately I have developed headaches in the evenings. Three years ago I had a child via cesarian because my blood pressure was too high (don t know I that s relevant)! I just want some help and my doctor doesn t seem to care. Also I supposively have adult ADD. Which I guess contributes to my forgetfulness which is worse as well. Thank you!(also heart disease, cancer, hypertension, thyroid disorders. Are in family hx)

Thanks!I am very tired today and feel like I would like to go to bed....which I never nap in the day. I take blood pressure meds and just took my blood pressure. Not bad. 103/62 with a 65 pulse. I have my own wrist gauge, and an excellent blood pressure program which I log my pressure maybe every other day or so. Gives my doc wonderful readings over a month, 6 months, etc. if he needs them. I have had the band calibrated. Why am I soo tired. I have a cat that is 22 and has hyper-thyroid and that depresses me badly.
