There isn' t anything in particular that I think may be the cause of this.Please help!

Either or both could cause the symptoms you descibe. DO see at the ery elast a really good GP, preferably a good local psychiatrist, for a full assessment and diagnosis, and then a discussion of treatment options. These are conditions which respond really well to treatment, and may need some counselling and rest, maybe not even medication
