Just got a new job but feeling so unwell?

Hello, I'm a 21 year old female. The past couple of years I have been out of the work due to severe anxiety and depression and an eating disorder, however I was studying and getting my qualifications and trying to get better mentally which I have managed to do.

So Ive just started work in an office, part time, doing packaging, counting and checking orders are correct etc.

Ive been suffering with severe headaches and nausea for a year, I had an MRI done at 15 where they found some extra water on brain (hydrocephalus) but was determined that I was probably born with it so it shouldn't be a problem.

just under year ago they sent me for another MRI and found that it may have gotten worse, however I have absolutely no idea if this is causing the issue as I'm still yet to see the specialist. The appt is next month.

The past few weeks the head pain is constant. It is very achy and dull with an intense pressure. I also get pain when I move and sharp pain. My neck hurts aswell. This has been getting worse now and I just don't know what to do, Ive been the doctors and hes gave me some pills but nothing works.

Ive just started this job and I'm finding it so difficult, I'm constantly making a fool of myself because people will tell me stuff and my concentration is so bad I cant remember what they have said or what ive been told.

I also have dizziness and bad memory
