I was diagnosed with an NOS mood disorder last year. However, I have a feeling that it's something more. I take Lamictal, and sometimes it works, and other times it's like it has zero effect.
I've noticed these symptoms that has developed in the past few months:
easier to anger
sensitivity to light
constant headaches on the left side
lack of concentration
memory loss (big issue since I'm only 22)
marked feelings of loneliness, even when I'm around people
I've also noticed that the depression has gotten slightly worse, but it might be seasonal, and my self-perception, which has always been off, is even worse. I have thoughts of being unloved and unwanted by the opposite sex.
I don't know what's wrong anymore. And I'm scared to be put on any more meds because of the weight gain issue; I can't afford to gain any more weight.
Can someone shine some light on this? And I'm sorry if this came out a little confusing.
