Only: Psychiatric consultation would help rule out medical problems, and at thesame time, evaluate, diagnose and treat the depression. See a psychiatrist for a conclusive answer in your case. Good luck.

Sad or...: Agree with dr. Satulovsky. You may have a sad mood. You could have major depression. You may have medical conditions that are causing this or not.... The best way to know is through a psychiatric evaluation. Take care.
