Dizziness, headache, chocolate craving, normal blood test. What is wrong?

For the past 2-3 weeks i have been getting dizzy and nearly fainted. I am so tired all the time and have no energy. I have headaches nearly everyday. I have also been craving alot of chocolate. I usually exercise 4-5 times a week but lately i have no energy to do so. I have recently moved house and finally have my own space that i havent had for the past year but apart from that no real changes in my life. I had my period last week so surely can not be pregnant... always use a condom when with my partner.... i went to one doctor whom did nothing. I then went to another doctor and he sent me for blood tests but iron and thyriod is fine... am waiting results of Vitiman D levels. Can you help at all as to what you think is wrong?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Welcome to HCM!

I have read your questions carefully and from that I find that you have lethargy all day long, crave for chocolates, not preganant, feel dizzy & weak, have headaches, and your iron and thyroid are ok.

You have not mentioned your blood pressure and sugar levels, which is important in your case as all these symptoms can be due to raised or low BP and disturbed sugar levels.

If it is within normal limit, then your symptoms appear to be due to stress/ depression / chronic fatigue. You have not mentioned if you remain sad/ anxious most of the time? But there is definitely loss of energy, loss of activity level, reduced interaction, increased craving for food ( sugary). this may be related to seasonal mood change or depressive disorder/ fatigue.

Had I been treating you and with all above mentioned investigation come normal, I have found such symptoms responding greatly to sertraline 25-100 mg once a day.
Along with it increase salad and water consumption and force your self to go for one hour walks daily/ half hour exercise daily.
Avoid being alone, and sleeping in day time.

please fix an appointment with a psychiatrist, this will surely help you.

Hope the reply is useful and get well soon.
