do you eat properly? Like fruit and carbs etc? That can have a big factor in feeling less tired.

You could actually have Fibromyalgia, I don't know though. Unfortunately no tests can be carried out to diagnose it.

Have you told all of this to the Dr? Are you being treated for your depression?

Perhaps you should revisit your Dr and express your concerns.
To some extent a lot of people do feel tired, but if it is effecting your day-to-day functioning and is making you unhappy then you need to get some help.

As somebody said, what is your diet like? Do you eat fruit and veg, and get your vitamins etc?

I have an iron deficientsy, which has given me all those things you have listed. I'd recommend talking to the doctor about whether you can get iron tablets, and if you are a woman, whether you can go on the pill.

I'm gonna disagree with going to the Doctor n telling em its depression. If you want to be taken seriously, never say 'Well, I self diagnosed myself online by asking loads of 18 year old students'. It wont go down well
