My son has been ill with various symptoms; listlessness, boredom, blues?

Take him to good Dr. These are vague symptoms & most people would say he is depressed. This may be the case, & there are effective treatments for this. But there are other serious conditions that could be causing these symptoms. It takes an astute dr who takes the time to take a good history& do a complete physical exam to make sure this pt. Doesn't have anything more serious, a debilitating chronic dz or even cancer.
