Looks like you need a good clinical exam. Pl see your MD

These symptoms need to be evaluated. Start with your family doctor and discuss these symptoms with them. You need to be examined and have your vital signs taken-it would be helpful if you could be examined during a “hot flash”. You will need further testing-blood, urine, EKG, etc. You may need to see a specialist, depending on the initial test results. Definitely see your doctor ASAP! Good luck!

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. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. Drink more water. Wish you good health!
