The first step is to: Find out what you are dealing with. See your physician for an evaluation to see if you have any medical conditions causing your symptoms. A psychiatrist can also medically evaluate you for med causes as well as doing a diagnostic assessment. Once, it is clear what your symptoms represent - than an individualized treatment plan can be developed. Take care.

Depression: Ask your primary care doctor for a referral to a qualified mental health clinician so he or she can help you make a proper diagnosis. It may take more than one visit, don't be in a rush and see someone who will take the time to really know you.
