It seems to me that I have depression: my hands give up from apathy and constant bad mood. Should I go to a psychiatrist and, if depression is found, treated with medication?

Yes, it's worth it, if your condition is frankly painful and your life, work and health, stable, passive harm is caused.

And we are talking about inoperability, pain, chronic fatigue, weakness, poor sleep and lack of sober thoughts.

As you correctly noted in the comments, we are talking about prolonged depression for more than 1-2 months - then it is better to consult a doctor

As a rule, if we are talking about just a bad mood and a decrease in productivity and efficiency, but at the same time there is no physical harm to health and life - then this can be corrected by communication with a person who can listen to you.

Many people isolated from close, confidential communication can experience mild forms of depression and mild symptoms - which improve when the cause is removed.
