Extremely run down and exhausted. What is the reason for this?

Hi, I ve been feeling extremely run down and exhausted all the time. I used to be a morning person and full of energy throughout the day, now all I seem to want to do is find extra time for a nap. What could be the cause of this? Also, I have been feeling rather down and depressed, not wanting to go out or do anything. Please help

I need more details about you to guide you properly like age, sex, any medical illness or any previous illness, previous medication, any stressor etc

However visit to a psychiatrist is reasonable if your daily routine is hampered.......

Good Luck

Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...

All your symptoms are indicative of depression. Feeling low, lack of energy, easy fatiguability, lack of interest or initiative are all typical symptoms of depression. Please consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further treatment. Treatment can be in the form of anti-depressant medication or psychotherapy. With proper treatment you will be able to come out of this situation. Sp, please don't hesitate to seek help immediately.

Wish you all the best.

General & Family Physician Dr. A K M Wasim Rahman's  Response
May be this is due to your depression. I will ask you some question-
1. Is there any problem in your personal life or work place recently?
2. Have you lost interest in activity which was pleasurable to you earlier(like watching movies, gossiping etc.)?
3. Do you confind yourself into your room mostly?
4. Do you feel irritated while talking to someone?
5. Any sign of hopelessness or helplessness?
6. Decreased apetite?
7. Decrased/ increased sleep?
8. Negetive thoughts all the time?
if answer to most of the question is yes then you should start antidepressant and consult a psychiatrist. Along with medication and yoga will also be helpful.
if most of the answer (at least 6)C is NO, check for any other symptom which may indicate any disease. that also may cause depression.
best of luck.
