Sleep and exercise: How do you know your muscle weakness is linked to depression? Have you seen your doctor and had this symptom explained? If not, and you're concerned about muscle weakness, it's a good idea to have this evaluated. Muscle weakness is not a primary symptom of depression. Fatigue or loss of energy, along with insomnia, and decreased participation in activities could lead to muscle atrophy, however.
