What could be causing mood swings & irritability ?

I m a 30 year old female, i ve had a hysterectomy in the past couple years. Though have both ovaries, but only one tube left. Lately i ve been getting more and more depressed, sleep is a little odd. The odd hot and cold flashes. Over heating when sleeping, headaches. I do have borderline personality disorder , but the medication has been working. Was put on Lamotrigine for it. Not sure what could be causing this, other then some stress i ve been under. But the quite frequent feeling of being tired, to the point I wish I could sleep. But impossible for me in the day time, I don t know what to do. I haven t been able to get into my doctor yet. I m curious if there is anyway to counteract what ever is happening, atleast until I can get into him.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Since both of your ovaries are intact, it cannot be due to hormonal deficiencies. Most of the symptoms you are having do suggest of the mood swings and the personality disorder you are already having.Your doses need fresh adjustment.
