See a Dr: None of these symptoms points directly at any one condition. You should see a Dr for a physical and appropriate lab workup. Darkness under the eyes can be a sign of allergies, Telangiactasia (spider veins) over the trunk can indicate increased blood pressure or sometimes liver problems, general unwellness can have a variety of causes. The Dr can review history/examine/test for a variety of causes.
