Postpartum or something else?

Hi Ladies, I am trying to figure out if I am having postpartum depression or if maybe it's a thyroid issue etc. My baby is 8 months old and I have always been a very stressed out/ anxious worry all the time type of person but recently I am noticing my anxiety levels are through the roof. I am stressed out over every little thing and assuming the worst in everything. It spirals out of control. I don't sleep much (however the baby is up a lot through the night) and my hair is falling out like crazy. I can be sitting there fine one second and the next it's like a wave of sadness washes over me and I don't even know what I'm sad about... If I go to a doctor to see about this do I go to a general practitioner or my obgyn? Thanks in advance :)
