Depression With Fatigue

What Causes Depression With Fatigue?

Depression with fatigue can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'needs attention'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose depression with fatigue, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "depression with fatigue" as a symptom.  Here are five possibilities:
  • DMAE Need
  • PMS D
  • Stress
  • Hypersomnolence
  • Progesterone Excess

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
eating during sleep hours
poor concentration during cycle
loss of appetite
frequent bizarre dreams
forgetting dreams
on moderate dose progesterone
slight eyelid twitch
non-vaginal candidiasis
refined sugar consumption
occasional drowsiness
some difficulty waking up
being in an imperfect relationship
... and more than 50 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of depression with fatigue:
Cause Probability Status
Hypersomnolence 90% Confirm
Progesterone Excess 27% Unlikely
DMAE Need 2% Ruled out
Stress 2% Ruled out
PMS D 2% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
