hello I'm an 18 year old female and ive been having migraines for about a month now that assumed were a symptom of my allergies. I get migraines about twice a week now along with minor headaches throughout the week.I take Excedrin for them but it usually doesn't help so I have to sleep for it to go away. I've noticed this last week my hair has been falling out in alarming amounts. I can run my hand through my hair and clumps of it will fall out. I have very thick long hair and I' m used to some of my hair falling out but not to this extent. I've also been having digestive problems whenever I eat certain food that normally would not hurt my stomach?
The headaches are starting to affect my productivity through out the day and I'm not sure what to do about them or exactly what's causing them. I feel like it might be stress related?

Welcome to the forum.

I strongly suggest you make an appointment with your doctor.

tell him/her the complete symptoms and stress you are under.

Get a complete blood panel and any other tests the doc might want to run. Loosing hair is not a side effect of migraines I have ever hear of.

However, it is a SE of stress.
