Sleep/Depression: There are many reasons you could wake up suddenly and shaking. You should consult your doctor to rule out physical causes before you assume depression is the cause. It is possible but it is difficult to know without a consultation and if it is determined that you are depressed ask for a referral to a qualified mental health professional.
