Exercise: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Depression is treatable. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated.

It Could: It would definitively be beneficial as long as you deal with the other issues such as blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, cigarette avoidance and exercise as well. Many factors come together to affect you and taking care of emotional stressors is part of the whole package.

A psychologist could help in stress reduction, however, it is far more important to make other life style changes in diet, exercise and may be adding medication through the advice of a physician

Fracture: Stress fractures are the last stage before complete failure of the bone. The balance between bone breakdown and bone rebuilding has been lost. Continuing to run on a stress fracture will delay healing in the best of circumstances and will eventually result in a complete fracture.

Depends: Trazodone is often used to help people sleep but it is a very weak antidepressant. Remeron (mirtazapine) is a much more effective antidepressant. Make sure your diagnosis is correct, though. Bipolar depression frequently causes severe sleep problems and requires different treatment. A psychiatrist or family physician with an interest in psychiatry can help you sort this out.
