Not : Not everyone who's depressed feels depressed. Silly, right? Sometimes, depression presents as aches & pains, increase/decrease in appetite/weight/sleep. Anhedonia or the loss of interest in doing anything (fun) is typical. I'm not sure what to make of your head hurting, unlike a regular headache. You'll need to take this up with your family physician. Even if your test strips are sealed, if they're old and presumably expired, you might want to get a new pack to be absolutely sure. 128 doesn't seem high enough to warrant medication unless you've already failed lifestyle, eg nutrition & exercise. On the other hand, perhaps your hgba1c was extremely high, say >8. Anemia and/or low thyroid can make you excessively tired, too. Go see your family physician for a more thorough evaluation. Good luck!
