Always tired!

Hi Doc,
I am finding that I am constantly tired. Last year I figured that it was just because I needed a holiday and was under some stress, but I have now had a 3 week holiday and my doctor put me on a mild anti-depressant to help with the stress but I am still finding that I can hardly drag myself out of bed in the mornings. I am getting enough sleep, I go to bed between 10pm and 11pm every night and wake up at about 06:30am and am eating well and I just cannot understand where this is coming from. I am lethargic all day at work and battle to set my mind on something and actually get it done. Please help.

I have a constant itch in my groin area. There is no rash or red marks or anything. Just the itching gets really bad and then I have to scratch on such a sensitive part and sometimes when I am amongst other people. What can be the cause?
Please help.
