Sounds like anxiety and depression..... They both tend to drain my energy really badly when they are acting up.... I get the insomnia as well... Sometimes days at a time... You might consider speaking to your doc and see if they might put you on an anxiety medication to see if it helps....

 it might be a good idea to get a check-up from a general practitioner. make sure it isnt anything besides anxiety. hope everything turns out well for you.

What they said. It COULD be, but we'd feel terrible if there was something else going on and you didn't go see a doctor. Especially the weakness and chest issues. Hope you feel better soon!

 I agree!  Depression makes me so tired,anxiety and panic attacks wear me out,but can't sleep at night w/o Ambien.  I get chest pains and dizziness from anxiety/panic too.   have been to ER many times.  better to b safe than sorry.  But,recently my blood sugar was high and my thyroid low,so I started Insulin shots and increased my thyroid med,I had been exhausted,and am feeling a bit more energy now.
