I've been having really low mood (hesitant to call it depression) and anxiety for nearly two months now. It came on quite suddenly, I feel like I woke up one day and felt a 'cloud' over me, I cry at lunch, desk, on the tube and so on. It comes over me like a wave for no apparent reason, and I can't control it like I normally would be able to if I was upset.
My doctor recommended antidepressants, but my Mum pushed for blood tests. Results were Vit D- 23 and Iron- 19. I have been on supplements Iron and Vit D (20,000) for two weeks now. I saw improvements straight away but then came crashing back down to crying at work, feeling extreme anxiety and so on.
Could this be causing such extreme low mood and anxiety? It is affecting my day-to-day life, productivity at work (my boss has noticed and I am working from home now and then) and my close friends/family are really worried about my mental health.
Just looking for some insight here. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? Thanks in advance.
