Brief Answer:
side effects of medicines

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting the question.
I have gone through your medical history in detail.

If you were healthy until a few weeks ago,then these might be early symptoms of side effects of anti depressant medicines that you have been taking.You should check this with your doctor who had prescribed the above medicines.

Since how long have you been taking these medicines?

Other possibility is of a low grade viral infection causing soreness and dizziness.
Do you have a fever at present or have you experienced fever in last few days?

I would suggest you to take anti inflammatory tablets like tramadol,ibuprofen or paracetamol for soreness.
Tab. Vertin can be taken for dizziness.

If symptoms do not improve,then you should get your blood checked for complete blood count,RBC,WBC and platelet counts.

Electrolyte imbalance is also a possibility and this can be diagnosed by checking serum sodium,potassium and calcium levels in blood.

I hope the answer was useful.

Feel free to ask me any follow up queries that you may have.

Thank you.
Kind regards.
