Lack of energy, feeling weak, dizziness. Diagnosed with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder. Treatment?

I'm 22 & I have been diagnosed with depression,anxiey,bipolar disorder,and anxiety, while all of that has been under control.I am still struggling with the amount of energy I have. I don't have any ambition to do anything. I have been trying to get my GED for the past 4 years, and I feel I will never accomplish any of my goals, because of the lack of energy I have. My body is weak, sometimes my arms, and legs have a tingling sensation.I get dizzy, and faint for no apparent reason. I can sleep all day, and still I am exhausted. I have been to several doctors, and after a few test they seem to give up.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi there, thanks for asking. even bipolar people are depressed most part of their disease period. Treatment of depression is very important and most of time is complex. It should be a combination of medication and talk sessions in order to treat it completely. You can ask your doctor to introduce you to a psychotherapist to do this for you. tingling and anxiety that you have also will be manageable with talk sessions. I wish you the best health.

Welcome to HCM

You have history of Depression, Anxeity Disorder and Bipolar Disorder. The symptoms you are having for four years like lack of energy, tiredness, weakness, tingling sensation in legs, dizziness etc are nothing but Somatic Symptoms of depression only. Each and every investigation will come normal. I will advise you to please visit your psychiatrist for expert opinion. medicines like Duloxetin are very useful in such symptoms apart from conventional antidepressants. Eat food rich in omega-3 Fatty acids, try to do yoga and relaxation exercises, you will improve in some time.
