Detailed Answer:
Hello Madam,

Thanks for writing to us.

I can understand your concern.

Your history suggests you are suffering from depression likely considering all physical work up normal. Your aging process is likely adding in this problem.
You have tried 12 different medicines. Please let me know which are they? for what duration and dose?

If your diagnosis of depression is confirmed and it is not responding to medicines psychotherapy(like CBT) and ECT(electro convulsive therapy) should be used.

Provide some other information also to help you better

- Your family history

- Do you have any physical problem and are you taking any medicines for the same?

- Have you consulted psychiatrist? What is doctor's opinion?

Waiting for your reply to help you further.

Regards,
Dr.Chintan Solanki.
