Doctor says I am depressed ,but why do not i feel it?

Doctor says I am depressed ,but why don't i feel it? I went to the doctors a few months ago and he said I was depressed. I am not thinking of suicide , I don t sit around and cry. I want to get out and do things but my body does not let me. I am having a hard time breathing, chest pains, heart palpitations, weight gain and loss of energy. Why can t they figure out what is wrong with me?

Have you had your thyroid checked? The symptoms you're describing are often signs of a thyroid issue, which is frequently misdiagnosed. Ask for a blood test to check your thyroid hormone levels, as well as to check for hashimotos disease. Here is a link to a great site with more information on thyroid health. http://thyroid.about.com/

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.

doctor1 MD

I have been having what my doctor has called palpitations for the past month, i.e. my heart has been racing unpleasantly. She suggested thyroid or anameia and I have had blood tests, am awaiting the results. Also I had an ECG which is said to show nothing untoward. I am 66 years old and female and I am concerned about the experience of heart racing. I feel as if I am anxious, frightened, and yet I know I'm not. Sometimes these effects last over half an hour, and sometimes eating sweet things sets it off.

I've been treated for heart palpitations before - I don't have them as frequently as I used to - however - on occassion it will feel as if my heart is like a fish flopping around out of water in my chest. You can see it and feel it very clearly. Yesterday it seemed to happen quite frequently. Today it seems fine. Is this something I should worry about? It doesn't seem like something normal.
