General malaise: Many diseases manifest by general malaise: weakness, fatigue, gastrointestinal discomfort, dizziness or lightheadedness. Consult doctor for specific signs of disease in systems of body function. Depression may cause many of them. Discontinuation of an antidepressant may cause flu-like symptoms or relapse of the depressive episode. Follow your doctor's recommendations as possible.
