Head doesn't feel right

Not sure what is going on, I defiantly don't feel depressed in terms of being sad or upset but I don't feel right!!
I have the following:

-Exhausted and always tired.
-No motivation even though I am usually a busy on the go person.
-Find it hard to find the effort to talk to people even OH sometimes I just can't be bothered.
- I feel almost empty sort of blank but not sad or down, just nothing, is the only way I can explain it.
-If I go out to the shop etc I feel detached, and spaced out, almost like I am watching from outside, dazed and not quite with it.
- I dread the though of bumping into someone I know when I am out.
- Apart from family, I don't like eating in front of people or meals out etc.

I am sure there is more but off the top of my head I can't think. Any idea what could be going on?

Sounds a little bit like a depression and anxiety disorder. I have a few of those symptoms - I always know when depression is rearing its ugly head when I have no motivation to do anything. The empty/blank thing I have, not wanting to speak to people, but I have those symptoms when depression is threatening. I don't necessarily have to feel sad or down to be depressed, but lack of motivation, isolating myself etc are big pointers for me.
Have you tried doing a depression self assessment? You could always do one of those (have a look on NHS website) and then go to a GP for a bit more advice.

also get GP to look at your thyroid? underactive makes everything slow down and can fuel depression
