Hi, I've not been feeling myself recently.

I've had to take two days off work as I have been feeling too exhausted. I've been going to bed at 7pm and not getting up till 10am the next day. I don't sleep this whole time but I feel too exhausted and tired to do anything else. I have recently got over a small cold and I have been very stressed with money worries, job worries and flat worries...general life. I had to get a taxi as I felt like I was going to faint in the street and my heart was pounding. I am still eating normally so it isn't due to a lack of food that I am feeling so weak. I have suffered from anxiety and depression but I feel like this is more physical.

I have had high blood pressure for a year (average 140/90). This may be due to my contraceptive pill, but I am still taking it and my GP said in June to just come back when I finish them. I am a 23 year old female who is not over-weight. I eat generally healthy food and I walk alot and sometimes jog. Do you know what might be wrong. I don't feel really ill, but I can't take much more time off work :s
