The symptoms that you are describing can be ascribed to a vitamin deficiency. If I were to guess which one, I would say that it would be vitamin B2 which is known as riboflavin. Deficiency of this can cause the symptoms that you have described. Thus, what you should do is to eat lots of food and drink lots of water.

You can try this out and see if it causes you relief. If it does not, then do reply with a detailed history and I will help you further.
