Depression and Headaches

Depression can be linked to physical symptoms.  This can include feeling fatigue and a decrease in energy.  You may also have some insomnia and/or early morning awakening.  Conversely you may feel more tired than normal or have excessive sleepiness.  It is also possible to have persistent aches and pains, cramps, headaches, or digestive problems that do not resolve with treatment.  A change in your appetite is possible, and can occur either with an increase or a decrease in appetite.

Without proper treatment depression can have a significant impact on your daily life.  Your career, hobbies, and lifestyle may all be affected. Treatment may consist of prescription management for your headaches, SSRI’s and behavioral therapies.
