I would recommend as follows:

Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thank you for asking on Ask a Doctor service!

I understand your concern and would explain that your symptoms could be related to blood pressure fluctuations.

Have you measured blood pressure values during those episodes of headaches?

Coming to this point, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician for a careful physical and some tests:

- a resting ECG
- complete blood count for anaemia
- thyroid hormone levels for thyroid dysfunction
- blood electrolytes for possible imbalances.

A brain MRI may be needed in case all the above tests result normal and there are no fluctuations in blood pressure values.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.

I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need!

Kind regards,

Dr.Ilir Sharka,
