Feeling OK Mentally, but feeling severely depressed physically
I had a pretty normal, low-stress workday but started feeling god-awful on the ride home, with what I perceived to be severe symptoms of depression, with no apparent cause. I've had this happen once or twice to me in the past few years, but nothing as bad as this. I can muster the thought process, but barely the energy to write this now.
What causes this sort of "physical symptom-only depression"? Has anyone expereinced something similar? What should be done other than the obvious go lie down, go for a walk, eat something et cetera.
