Having depression, fast heart beats, dizziness. Due to depression?

I am 15 and i have depression , confirmed by specialists. Lately life has been a bit tough on me and today when i was out running with the dog i could feel my heart beat hard, but just for one beat and then everything was normal but i felt dizzy afterwards and i just ignored it because i didn t think it was anything, but it kept doing that again, everytime i walked or ran. now a couple hours later it s still there when i try to walk only across the room, i don t know what to do, but my mom will call the doctor monday, but i would like an answer, because i think the doctors here are lazy and often ignore certain facts. Pleas help me, is it because of my depression, or something else?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I understand that it must be difficult to deal with depression at a young age. Though symptoms such as palpitation and diziness can occur due to anxiety (which often co-exists with depression), yet it is important that you have a proper evaluation done to check for any medical problems. Palpitations or dizziness, especially on exertion, can sometimes be due to certain medical conditions like heart problems, anaemia, etc. So, it is important to rule out possible medical causes before concluding that the cause is likely to be psychological. I'm sure that your doctor wil keep this in mind when you go for a check-up.

Wish you all the best.
