I have PCOS, and I have noticed that my sleeping pattern has dramatically changed. I have been eating a lot for the past two weeks. I did some online assessments and found out I have mild depression. Do you think I am having depression or just mood swings? I get irritated easily. Giving treats to myself is not helping me. I feel frustrated. I feel fed up. I have lost interest in exercising and dieting. My depression comes and goes.
I read your question carefully, and the following are my suggestions:
Symptoms like low mood, irritability, loss of interest, sleeplessness, low self-esteem, and loss of appetite or excessive eating are all signs of depression. I would suggest you visit a psychiatrist for proper treatment. Medicines of the class SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) like Escitalopram will help you to recover from the above symptoms in a week. Change your lifestyle. Do morning walks and light exercises. Take healthy food and drink lots of water. PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease) is a risk factor for depression.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you still have any doubts, you can ask further.
