What causes tiredness and depression along with sleeplessness?

I am 53 years old, female, and have led a too-sedentary life for several years due to injuries from a car accident. I have been getting back in shape a little and now I am worried about some feelings I have just recently as this week. I feel tired, haven't slept well, feel depressed, almost weepy. Two nights ago I was ironing and got an intense sharp pain right at my right temple that lasted for a minute or two. I finally sat down and took my blood pressure. It was something lilke 116/6? and my heart rate was 78 or so. I feel some tenderness in the same spot on my temple tonight, without touching it. I have been eating a lot,and feel like Im having an anxiety attack(physical chest symptoms) and for some reason I am worried about my heart. Any thoughts.
