Depression is a bad mood with decreased mental activity and motor lethargy. The cause of depression is almost always some kind of dissatisfaction, unresolved or oppressive situation.

Although depression is considered a disease of middle-aged people, it is common in all age groups – teenagers, young people and the elderly, and its manifestations in these groups can be atypical. Some people are helped by this drug:

Depression is often expressed in bodily forms. It can imitate a picture of any internal disorders, as if hiding under a mask of other disease (hence the name of disguised depression).

Weakness, fatigue, apathy, dizziness, feeling of heaviness, a burning sensation behind the chest, pressure in the head, constipation or diarrhea, flatulence, feeling of tightness and compression in breathing, weight loss, sleep disorders, a feeling of hot or cold in the chest, stomach, head, limbs, feeling of a coma in the throat, etc. develop.

During depression, the person is not aware of his low mood or associates it with a physical ailment, a consequence of an unrecognized illness. He or she is examined and treated for


a long time, with no visible improvement, for various somatic or neurological diseases.

The most common are ex


ciating pain that is difficult to describe, a variety of unpleasant sensations. With abdominal pain patients are treated (sometimes even surgically) for appendicitis, gastric and duodenal ulcer, cholecystitis, pancreatitis, food poisoning, etc.

Due to complaints of headaches and dizziness, other unpleasant feelings often of uncertain nature, patients are treated for neurasthenia, migraine, vegetovascular dystonia, etc.

At an early age, depression is manifested by tearfulness, disobedience, laziness, later children learn poorly, have conflicts at home and at school, leave home.

With a latent form of depression, it is not uncommon to have disorders in the sexual sphere: the duration of intercourse changes, the desire to have sex decreases, and orgasm becomes blunted. Eating behavior is also disturbed, both in the direction of a decrease in appetite and systematic overeating. That is, a bad mood is a direct cause of undesirable fullness.

Eating is a good reflection of a person’s emotional state. In this case, a lack of appetite in the morning, disorderly eating during the day and abundant suppers are characteristic.

Sometimes, with latent depression, sleep disorders are the main, and sometimes the only, manifestations of the illness. They are usually characterized by early awakening and a decrease in the duration of night sleep. Patients fall asleep easily, but after a few hours of sleep, they wake up. In the morning, they feel completely broken and only in the afternoon or in the evening do they feel somewhat better.
