Please Consult psychiatrist

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr. XXXXXXX
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.
I read your problem and history.I need some information to help you more.
"GBA means is it Glucosidase?, why did you use Escitalopram? for any disorder, with without doctor's help? And symptoms you have described since how long time?"

As you already have taken Escitalopram, I guess you might have depression symptoms. Your current symptoms of no enthusiasm, avoiding task and unsatisfactory sleep also suggest symptoms of depression.
For confirmation of diagnosis, detail history of your social,economical,occupational, emotional and family aspect to be taken.
After that treatment can be started in form of medicines and/or behavior-psychotherapy.
Depression is common illness in current time and treatment for that also easily accessible.
You need a psychiatrist consultant for the same with your all past clinical and medical records.
Hope you got solution of your query, let me know for further doubt.

Regards,
Dr. Chintan Solanki

I have a past with ovarian cysts. Not a fun one. I m 16 years old and have had 3 surgeries to remove them. This last one, they didn t remove. I had crippling pain for months. I still have the pain but it s dulling down. yet I can still feel pressure. I have had doctor after doctor tell me it s all in my head so don t try that. I ve been to countless counselors, therapists, psychiatrists, they can t find anything wrong with my mental health. Ovarian cancer is very prevalent in my family history. Should I be concerned?
