HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Heavy periods can cause dizziness because of the excess loss of blood so this could be a definite cause of your symptoms.

They would not usually be associated with an increase in temperature. A fever suggests that there may be an underlying infection. Viral illnesses are more common eg the cold or flu.
If an infection is present, it would also contribute to the dizziness and also to the headache.

If you symptoms persist or worsen, you would need to consider seeing your doctor for an assessment.

I hope this helps

Yes. My 19 year-old daughter has been having headache(migraine), fever ( 101) and achy. This is the tail-end of what started as nausea and vomiting ( bile only) since Tuesday. Went to doctor Wednesday and Thursday. First day, they did orthoststic tilt test. Normal. Pulse went from 80 to 114. They proscribed a protonix and prescription Pepcid . They also did blood work which showed normal red/ white blood cell count. Went to primary care next day and talked about possible anxiety issues . Rx for 5 mg lexapro prescribed. Today is the day with migraine and fever. Somewhat frustrated and need to know what to do next.
