Most of us know the textbook symptoms of depression, like irritability, fatigue, and a feeling of sadness you just cannot shake off. But what about muscle aches, tummy troubles, or waking up before dawn? Surprisingly, these can also be warning signs of depression—and if you are not sure whether your current funk is anything to worry about, they can help clue you in that something deeper is going on. Here are a few lesser-known symptoms to look out for.

1. Aches and pains
2. Weight loss or gain
3. Trouble staying asleep
4. Skin issues
5. Migraines
6. Cavities (A recent Australian study found that depression was associated with increases in tooth decay and tooth loss)
7. Stomach issues (such as nausea, heartburn, constipation, and diarrhea)
