    Serious Question

    Hello, Over the last few months I have been told I have been having serious mood swings. I've been researching this and I think I've found the problem as such. Bipolar.

    The symptoms are as follows

    * Feeling unusually “high” and optimistic OR extremely irritable
    * Unrealistic, grandiose beliefs about one’s abilities or powers
    * Sleeping very little, but feeling extremely energetic
    * Talking so rapidly that others can’t keep up

    * Racing thoughts; jumping quickly from one idea to the next
    * Highly distractible, unable to concentrate
    * Impaired judgment and impulsiveness
    * Acting recklessly without thinking about the consequences
    * Delusions and hallucinations (in severe cases)

    In bold are the symptoms I have. Is this enough to warrant a trip to doctor to find out what I have
    No'ones gonna take me alive
    The time has come to make things right
    You and I must fight for our rights
    You and I must fight to survive

    I'd say it's worth a visit if you're worried about it and it's causing effect in your daily life to yourself or people around you. But I wouldn't say you definitely have bi-polar disorder simply because you display those symptoms.

    Interesting, just a quick question.
    Are you sleeping alright? Although Perm tends to believe that sleep isn't very important your actions at the moment maybe due to a lack of a sleep as that is what I tend to be like when I haven't been sleeping well.

    Been sleeping fine. As far as I can tell anyway I don't feel tired when I have mood swings.

    You'd be best speaking to a doctor/psychiatrist tbh, rather than us.

    Feel you should be at a Doctor, and not at CW.

    Symptoms sound like most people I've ever met tbh.

    I wish I could leave this building with padded walls and bars though....

    You've only listed symptoms of mania there. Without any depressive symptoms, it's not bipolar.

    1. How's your appetite??

    2. Are the mood swings extreme, mild or just some that may be a part of everyday life events??

    I've been recently diagnosed with clinical depression but am convinced that it is more likely to be bipolar.

    Bipolar mood swings tend to be from one extreme to the other and seriously inhibit sleep. You tend to have energy when you shouldn't and have energy "bursts" where you might make questionable decisions.

    See a doctor. Could be a thyroid problem but it's too hard to tell without the ability to ask questions in real time, not to mention a few medical tests.
