    Actually, "I don't know" would only make sense if something is wrong with you and you don't know what it is.
    "How are you."
    "I don't know. I've been feeling bad ever since the heat got here. I'm not sure if it's the heat or something else."
    If you are feeling fine, that very seldom needs an explanation. With very few exceptions, people are sure that they feel fine.

    Telling somebody you don't know makes more sense if somebody asks you "What's going on" = what is the situation? You may very well not know what the situation is.
