Ive had depression run in my family and just now started to see someone about it. Im 22 and all the doctor said was I was mild depressed. But I feel that there is more than just depression wrong. I have signs of fatigue, headaches, abdominal pain, trouble thinking, memory problems, and chest pains. Im on medicine for my headaches (topamax) and I just started taking Wellbutruin XL for depression and the doctor said it would help with memory to. But for some reason I feel something else is wrong beside depression. If anyone has any advice please let me know. Thanks

  • I'm not a physician but sounds like some of your symptoms may be the beginning of MS -multiple sclerosis. Make sure you get MRI's (very important - with contrast - so that areas of the spine that may be affected are highlighted) of your cervical, thoracic, lumbar and brain. Go to a university hospital and see the chief of neurology - one who specializes in MS to rule out that disease. Do your homework too - the internet is a great source of information. - www.understandingms.comMy prayers are with you.
