welcome to HealthcareMagic
Gastric issues most of the time are related to lifestyle like odd hours of food ;no exercise;eating more of outside food etc;so better make changes in your habits if there is a problem.If you have acidity take medicine course prescribed by a doctor .Mental tiredness can be due to mental stress;family issues;over work ;work pressure.Even dandruff is caused by stress both physical and mental and and you are underweight also.I would suggest you to get examined and investigated to find the physical cause of being underweight and get treated by a doctor.Once the cause is known and treated you should be fine.The confidence isalso related to physical wellbeing so better get treated .Start on a multivitamin and you should feel better as vitamins like B12 deficiency are known to cause depression;fatigue;weakness and even loss of concentration.
Take care.

Hi, I'm 25 years old female and have been experiencing hair loss for over 8 years now. I also got my CBC test and thyroid test done but they are all fine - I don't have iron deficiency or thyroid problem, I don't understand the cause of this gradual hair loss. It started after I'd done extreme dieting at the age of 16, but it's been years since I've stopped dieting and eating healthy but still no improvement. I also take multivitamins as prescribed by a dermatologist. Neither does such condition run in my family.. Please help!
p.s I am 52 kg in weight and 5'5" in height.

I am suffering from prostate enlargement for couple of years. The following conditions can be observed after the continues treatment. The medical specialist (Dr.) recommended antibiotics but found no results. Via internet I started taking multivitamin which consist of Zinc & selenium and vitamin E and C together and raw garlic with diner. The results are as follows.

burning sensation after ejaculation - disappeared
pain in right testicle - disappeared
urgency in urinating - reduced by 50%
urine flow - increased by 60%

there are some days found difficult to urinate only in the morning. (first time only)

PSA level is varying from 4 to 6 in last two years.

Could you recommend a treatment to come out from this permanently.
