Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Since how long are you having this?
Have you been seen for this?
Have you had any blood tests done recently or in the past?
Do you have any other medical problems?
Are you on any medications for anything?
Please let me know.
It's been getting worse for a while. I am having trouble sleeping for some time. Months. And I have been having depressed episodes for some time. But lately, the past couple of weeks I have just been completely exhausted all the time. I am have been unable to go to work as I am so exhausted. I have not had blood tests recently.
No medical problems that i know of
The first thing that comes to mind when reading your symptoms i.e. being depressed, sleep problems and exhaustion is a thyroid problem which needs to be ruled out with blood tests for it.
Additionally I would like to have other routine blood tests like a complete blood count, liver function and kidney function tests.
Once all those are documented as normal then a diagnosis of depression should be considered which in itself can cause all these symptoms and then you will require antidepressants like citalopram.
So the next step here is to book an appointment with your GP and get tested and get examined.
