1. Tiredness: People with depression often complain of a near-complete lack of energy. Not only do they experience mental fuzziness, but also physical tiredness.

2. Unexplained Pain: Chronic headaches and unexplained back pain can be a symptom of depression. It might cause pain because the neurotransmitters responsible for relaying pain sensations to the brain are the same substances that regulate mood. A holistic approach to depression includes addressing these pain issues. Some antidepressant medications work on both mood and physical pain.

3. Sleep problems: One of the classic signs of depression is sleep disturbance. You might wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep or you sleep 10 to 12 hours each night and still want an afternoon nap. In either case, everything requires Herculean effort. Some sleep changes are a normal part of aging. For example, you wake earlier and tend to sleep in 4-hour increments as opposed to one 8-hour bout.

4. Weakened Immune System: Depression can cause major immune system issues. People who are depressed often have elevated levels of stress hormones. These cause inflammation, which triggers an immune system response. When your immune system is chronically responding to excessive levels of stress hormones, your body may become less equipped to deal with threats from bacteria and viruses. If you have been diagnosed with depression, you may want to take precautions, like washing your hands frequently or getting a flu shot.
