Can I be depressed without knowing?!!

Hi all just looking for some advice and guidance as I’m pretty much at my wits end here.

So for the past three years I have been suffering from really bad fatigue that has affected my ability to enjoy anything in life.

this all started after I developed a panic disorder and depression in 2018. But I don’t feel depressed anymore or anxious yet the fatigue is still persistent.

my doctor is convinced it is depression causing it but I don’t feel depressed at all. Sure I’m very down but that’s because I wanna do things and my body won’t let me.

does this seem like depression to you guys? I’m not convinced at all.

please any advice you be so much appreciated thanks

Have you had blood tests to rule out things like underactive thyroid?

Thanks so much for the reply. Yeah I had them done last week and nothing showed up. I was honestly hoping something would just to get an answer. But unfortunately I am still clueless and giving up hope now on ever feeling better

It can be difficult to know when we are depressed sometimes, but if your only symptom is tiredness then it is more unlikely. Are you on any medication?

Well I wasn’t until last week, the doctor put me back on Sertraline as she thought I was depressed. I have been off that almost a year.
