Here's how to identify Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is often compared and identified as depression. However, there is some difference between them. Here is what.
BRACKNELL, U.K. - April 3, 2023 - PRLog -- Bipolar disorder was earlier known as manic depression. It is a mental health condition that causes intense mood swings, including emotional highs, known as mania or hypomania, and lows, known as depression.

When people are depressed, they may feel hopeless and gloomy and lose interest in most activities that they usually like to do. When your mood transforms to hypomania or mania, which is usually less extreme than mania, people may feel full of energy, euphoric, and frustrated. These mood swings can deprive your activity to sleep, judge, think, and affect your behavior.

Episodes of mood swings may take place several times a year. Most people will experience some emotional signs and symptoms between the episodes. On the other hand, some may go through no episodes.


There are multiple types of Bipolar and other related disorders. They may include mania, hypomania, and depression. Signs and symptoms may lead to severe distress and impulsive mood swings in behavior.

Bipolar disorders 1

If you have this kind of disorder, you may have had at least one manic episode. It may be preceded by episodes of major or hypomanic depression. In some cases, mania may bring a break from reality, known as psychosis.

Bipolar disorder 2

In this case, you may have had at least one episode of major depression and hypomanic depression. However, manic episodes were absent.

Cyclothymic disorder

In this disorder, you may have had symptoms of hypomania and episodes of depression in two years, one in your childhood and the other in your teenage. However, these symptoms are less serious than major depression.

Other types

These disorders include bipolar and other related disorders that are triggered by excessive use of alcohol, certain medications, and due to some medical problems. These medical conditions are stroke, multiple sclerosis, and Cushing's disease.

These signs and symptoms may differ from person to person with time. Although bipolar disorder can take place at any age, it is usually ruled out in the teenage years or early 20s.
