Thanks for the query,

I have noted all your complaints.

Though there are so many causes of headache, I feel that you may have tension headache. Your sleep problem can also be related to stress. Based upon the symptoms that you have posted, I do not see any major organic nature of the problem. The headache and sleep related problem will improve with rest, relaxation and if required simple analgesics.

Back to your menstrual irregularity, I feel that some cycles can come the way you have described. This should not make you worried. If you have persistent menstrual irregularities, you may consult a specialist locally.

As of now, I think that you should just relax and you do not need any urgent medical evaluation.

I hope that I have clarified your query.
In case any further doubts, please feel free and get back to me.

All the best
