In brief: Depression

Often depression can manifest in physical symptoms, which should be checked by your GP.
If no problems are found by the GP, have you considered psychotherapy? Meds take the edge off symptoms, but by themselves do not solve problems. The real problem solving of emotional issues takes place in the psychotherapist's consulting room.
