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?

Ask for a blood test to check your thyroid hormone levels, as well as to check for hashimotos disease.

I m caring for my mother who has been diagnosed with CHF. They state that she is only using 16% of her heart. She is having episodes of extreme heat coupled with SOB and heart palpitations. We ve been treating with ice packs and increased 02, and tried some lorazepam, which she doesn t like to use because it makes her sleepy. She wants to know what causes these episodes and if Tylenol would help with the hot flash component of these episodes. Thank you!
