Our expert says:
Absulutely ! Obviously a noticeable depressed mood is common within a Depression, but often the physical and other symptoms are obvious without a major degree of sadness. Also, sometimes one may be so sad as to be feling numb and unfeeling, in a depression, and may go through a phase of feeling sadder in the early stages of depression, before the mood lifts to normal levels.
But the complex story you describe sugests a more complex possibility, and one that would best be assessed thoroughly by a specialist Psychiatrist, who your GP could refer you to, and be sure about the diagnosis and the best method of treatment.
