Can depression cause MS symptoms when someone isn’t depressed?
For over a month, I’ve had numbness in my right upper arm, brain fog, morning dizziness, and horrible exhaustion. I saw a neurologist and had a normal MRI. She thinks my symptoms stem from depression. I have depression, but haven’t been depressed lately. I’ve been dragging myself out a few hours a day to volunteer for a nonprofit. I would be there longer if I had more energy. I hang out with my friends as much as possible. I want to write and exercise, but I’m just so tired. Usually, when I’m depressed, I withdraw and don’t want to do anything. Currently, I want to do lots of things, but my body wears out after a few hours even with plenty of caffeine. This feels like something else, but I’m not a doctor.
