Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
It is possible that you could be suffering from a depressive episode. During a depressive episode one does have fatigue, headache, sleep disturbances and tiredness along with other symptoms of sadness.
You should see a psychiatrist who would like to prescribe you certain medications such as sertraline or escitalopram and also like you to enroll for cognitive behavioural therapy.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
