While depression may cause you to think of sadness, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness, or a lack of interest in activities that were once enjoyable, depression can be more sneaky. In some cases, depression presents itself in symptoms you may not expect. Here are seven symptoms of depression that may surprise you.

Weight Gain

Underlying depression can lead to weight gain. This may be due to comfort foods you eat to relieve your sad feelings, the unhealthy foods you eat because you don’t feel like grocery shopping or cooking, or a lack of exercise because you have no energy or motivation. When you wish you could lose weight, you find it hard to commit to a diet and exercise plan. All because of depression.

Unexplained Pain

Three out of four people who are depressed deal with chronic pain. Neck pain, back pain, headaches, stomach aches, digestive issues, and arthritis are common complaints of depressed people. This may be due to the shared biological pathways and neurotransmitters of pain and depression. When you’re already feeling down, you’re more in tune with slight discomforts and more sensitive to pain. On the flip side, pain can lead to depression.

Lack of Emotion or Strong Emotion

Some people with depression become apathetic. Things that once excited, pleased, or angered no longer have the same effect. Depression causes people to feel numb, distant, and blah.

Others expect to feel sad and blue, but their depression manifests as negative emotions of anger and irritableness. Slight offenses are blown out of proportion, you have a short fuse, and you’re frequently grumpy and irritable.

Poor Hygiene

People who are depressed often stop taking care of themselves. In this case, one’s outward appearance is an indication of inner problems. They may not brush or style their hair, brush their teeth, shave, or care what their clothes look like. Routine doctor appointments or health screenings are forgotten or neglected.

Risky Behaviors

Because you stop caring about yourself when depressed, you may begin engaging in risky behaviors. You may also have a marked insensitivity to the effects your behavior has on other people. Not wearing a seatbelt, drinking too much alcohol, becoming addicted to gambling, excessive shopping (aka “retail therapy”), and going into debt can all be signs of depression.
Always on the Internet

Whether you spend your time on social media, texting, gaming, shopping, gambling, or looking at pornography, excessive internet use is associated with depression. Even though you may be craving human contact and friendship, virtual interactions usually leave you feeling more depressed. The internet offers a world of distraction for people’s negative thoughts and emotions. And while it may provide a momentary boost in mood, it’s only an empty coping mechanism.

Forgetfulness

Feeling foggy, forgetful, or absent-minded? Can’t concentrate or make big or small decisions? Cognitive problems may be a symptom of depression. This may look like losing your keys, misplacing your phone, not being able to remember someone’s name, or not being able to decide what to wear. This occurs because depression increases your body’s stress hormone cortisol, which affects the part of the brain responsible for learning and memory.
