Most likely anxiety and possibly stress from your dad passing away. It should hopefully go away over time, and try to think about other things and do things that make you happy.

Head ache with light headedness - cause?
I don't agree that anxiety is necessarily the cause of headaches and light headedness. Several weeks ago out of the blue I got light headed when I lay down or sit up. I was treated for positional vertigo. Then the symptoms changed into severe headaches and light headedness but the positional part (lying down and sitting up wasn't as bad after the treatment). Instead I started getting intense headaches and light headedness even when I didn't change positions. I'm really scared. I can't get an MRI because I temporarily have expanders (interferes with MRI). So I'm scared. Any ideas?
