TMS & Depression

About Depression

Depression significantly affects a person's family and personal relationships, work or school life, sleeping and eating habits, and general health.  Its impact on functioning and well-being has been compared to that of other chronic medical conditions such as diabetes.  Just as diabetes is a disorder of the pancreas, major depressive disorder is a brain based disorder which improves with brain based solutions such as TMS.

An individual experiencing a major depressive episode may exhibit many or all of the following symptoms: 

  • a very low mood, which pervades all aspects of life

  • an inability to achieve pleasure in activities that were formerly enjoyed

  • may be preoccupied with, or ruminate over, thoughts and feelings of worthlessness, inappropriate guilt or regret, helplessness, hopelessness, and self-hatred.

  • poor concentration and impaired memory

  • withdrawal from social situations and activities

  • reduced sex drive

  • irritability

  • thoughts of death or suicide

  • insomnia (the typical pattern, a person wakes very early and cannot get back to sleep)

  • hypersomnia, or oversleeping, can also happen.

  • physical symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, or digestive problems;

  • Appetite often decreases, with resulting weight loss, although increased appetite and weight gain occasionally occur

  • Family and friends may notice that the person's behavior is either agitated or lethargic

Major depressive disorder affects approximately 216 million people in 2015 (3% of the global population). In most countries the number of people who have depression during their lives falls within an 8–18% range.  In North America, the probability of having a major depressive episode within a year-long period is 3–5% for males and 8–10% for females.  People are most likely to develop their first depressive episode between the ages of 30 and 40, and there is a second, smaller peak of incidence between ages 50 and 60.  The risk of major depression is increased with neurological conditions such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and during the first year after childbirth.  It is also more common after cardiovascular illnesses (e.g., heart attack), and is related more to a poor outcome than to a better one.
