I feel ill all the time, and this has been going on for over three years, and it is getting worse. I always feel really tired, and dizzy. I get headaches at least twice a day and have a really hard time concentrating in school because of how tired I always am. I also get a lot of muscle pains in my back, legs, and arm. I feel cold most of the time,even after I exercise and I'm sweating. I also have a lot of mucus drainage and always have a sore throat. I also feel like I'm in a daze most of the time.
I was diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety 2 years ago, and have been on different meds throughout the years. I have been told that all of the symptoms I just listed are just part of my depression. The meds have helped with my mental health, but haven't helped with any of the symptoms I just listed. I have had blood tests, and all of them have come out as normal.
I thought that maybe I wasn't feeling well because I wasn't exercising enough, or wasn't eating well. I started exercising more, but it just made me more tired and didn't help with anything. I also changed my diet so my sugar intake was a lot less, ate more vegetables, fruits, vitamin c, and stopped drinking coffee. This has not done much for me either.
Anytime I try to bring this up to the doctor, she just tells me I need to exercise more, and it's part of my anxiety and depression. I don't know what to do, as this is getting worse, and its getting harder and harder to concentrate of school. All I want to do when I get home is sleep, and it's hard to motivate myself to do any work. My parents just think I'm lazy,and need more exercise. I am just looking for some advice or insight to what could be causing it.
