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!

Yes, anxiety and other emotional issues could cause secondary symptoms, but you could well possess vestibular dysfunction in the inner ear involving otolithic instability. You could uncover answers by seeing an otolaryngologist.
