Regarding to those symptoms you listed above, you should probably look at your diet incase you have a food allergy or food intolerance. Keep a food diary of what you eat each day along with how bad your symptoms are on each day.
The most common foods that cause problems are wheat, gluten (gliadin), milk, egg and nuts. The reason why these foods are common allergens is because just about every processed food that's in the supermarket contains at least one, or more of these ingredients. So over the years of consuming these foods, if you develop a leaky gut from illness, or unhealthy living/eating habits, the food particles escape from your intestines and into your bloodstream.
Any food is toxic if you inject it directly into the bloodstream since it needs to be converted by the body into something your body can use. So by the food particles entering your bloodstream it is then treated as an invader (similiar to a viral infection) by your immune system, and your immune system creates specially designed anti-bodies to destroy the food particles. If this happens regulary, then you will find yourself feeling ill on a regular basis, and the symptoms may progress to something unbearable, or even life threatening.
As I said above, you should keep a food diary and try and pinpoint the offending foods (that is of course if food allergy/intolerance is what is causing your symptoms), and then remove them from your diet for a few weeks to see if your symptoms clear up. Only choose medication (antidepressants, etc) as a last resort, since most of these symptoms can be cleared up by changing a persons diet and lifestyle. Also, make sure you get all the essential vitamins, minerals, EFAs, digestive enzymes, amino acids, etc, from your diet and supplements on a daily basis, to prevent deficiencies, etc.
Hope this helps.
