I have experienced, fatigue, aches and pains, headaches, lack of concentration, lack of motivation and memory problems (also self-harm a few years ago) which have not been diagnosed despite different tests. The only thing they could think of was low iron but even when taking extra iron there's no change
One thing that has been suggested is depression and it seems to fit the bill although my mood tends to be an up and down thing. I worry that because I'm not "down" all the time, I can be upbeat at times but othes I'm ittitable and just don't want to do anything at all.
Does this sound similar to anyone?
The fatigue is the thing that is effecting me daily and I struggle with a lot! Also my anxiety levels have gone up over the past year.
Does anyone have suggestions on if anti-depressants would help with my symptoms?
I'm concerned as a lot of the side effects are the reason I'd want to take them! Are the side effects constant or only for the first few weeks?
I know a lot of people say therapy and exercise help too but I just don't have the energy to do them. Any help would be much appreciated.
