Sadness: Feeling sad is a normal emotion. However, if you predominantly feel sad even without a specific reason - it may warrant being checked for depression.Depression can also present with changes to sleep, appetite, energy level, self esteem, ability to feel joy, memory, decision making etc. Take care.

Agreed, the fact that you are asking means you have noticed it happens frequently so go for help to a doctor or psychologist to find out what caused it and what can be done. Good luck.

Yes: Sadness may be a symptom of depression which involves loss of ability to experience pleasure, insomnia or excessive sleepiness, lethargy, increase or decrease in appetite. There are many medicines available to treat this condition. Discuss with your doctor. If you have thoughts of harming yourself, you should go to the er. Exercise and journaling can help relieve those feelings in the meantime.
