Signs Of Depression Men Shouldn't Ignore, According To Experts

Wednesday, 8 July 2020

Symptoms of depression can be different in men and women. Men also tend to use different coping skills. Brain chemistry, hormones and different life experiences may be responsible for this. Depression symptoms which are same in both men and women include feeling of helplessness, hopelessness and sadness, extreme fatigue, difficulty in sleeping or sleeping too much, and not getting pleasure from activities usually enjoyed.

 

 

 


There are other signs, or behaviours, which could signal depression but are not as widely recognised. These include escapist behaviour like spending too much time at work or on sports. Digestive problems, headaches, increased intake of alcohol, controlling violent or abusive behaviour could be symptoms of depression, reports mayoclinic.org.

 

 

 

Symptoms of depression in men
Psychiatrist Dr Sanjay Chugh says that depression is a mood disorder in which the primary disturbance is in the mood of person experiencing depression. "The cardinal symptom of depression is therefore low mood, sadness and feeling blue, along with a lot of weepiness for no evident reason" he says.

 

 

 

"Some men, especially adolescent males, we can also expect to see a lot of irritability. Men can also experience anhedonia, which refers to lack of interest or pleasure in things which were interesting or pleasurable," Dr Chugh explains.Talking about the physical symptoms of depression which men shouldn't ignore, Dr Chugh says that they may find it difficult to sleep and may experience decrease in appetite followed by unintentional weight loss. They can also experience an increase in sleep and increase in appetite and weight gain.
