Four Subtle Signs Of Depression In Men

Carter Mccoy

If you are a man, you may be suffering from depression and not even be aware of it. Clinical depression is a real and serious illness that affects both men and women, and although there are no differences between the diagnosis of depression in the sexes, there are certain complaints that men have on their first visit to a doctor who are later diagnosed with depression. Many of these complaints are subtle symptoms; therefore, they are not apparent to a man suffering from depression. The following are four of these subtle signs.

Relentless fatigue

No matter the time of day, you feel tired, and to make matters worse, your body seems slow in reacting. You move slow and often talk slow. There doesn't seem to be any apparent reason for this, you simply feel physically drained. What can add to your confusion is that you may be getting plenty of sleep. In fact, you may be sleeping more than your friends or coworkers. However, you are still sluggish during the day, both physically and mentally.

Insomnia

Some men will complain of an inability to sleep at night. It would seem counterintuitive to think of insomnia as a symptom of depression, especially when sleeping too much can be a symptom, but depression attacks different people in different ways. Not sleeping at night can be the result of clinical depression.

Physical ailments

Depression can lead to sickness and pain. This condition is not imagined, but is brought about by the depression. In some cases it may be wholly due to depression, while at other times is may be an existing condition that is exacerbated by the depression. Common complaints are with digestive issues, pain in the back, and abdomen.

A persistent state of irritation

This is common in men, and is often dismissed as stress at work or in your private life. But when this irritable state does not go away, it may be a sign of depression. Sometimes a man isn't even aware of his level of irritation, so it is important to ask friends if they have noticed any change in your behavior. Internally, you may notice you have an increase in negative thoughts and attitudes in your daily life.

If you suffer from depression, you should understand that there are a variety of treatments available, including medication, diet change and sometimes psychotherapy. Because many of the symptoms of depression are so subtle, you should see your primary care physicians if you suspect you may have this health problem. Your doctor can rule out other causes of your symptoms and provide you with a proper diagnosis. For more information, contact a professional like those at Dr Kuris Counseling Centers.
