Analyses of a systematic household sample of 750 respondents aged 11-22, 19 with atypical depression, find atypical depression associated with fear of fat, insomnia, headache, and fatigue. Other research suggests adding these symptoms to criteria for atypical depression, rendering them quite similar to criteria used in studies of somatic depression.
