Thank you for using Just Answer. The symptoms you describe can be indicative of Bipolar Disorder. But, it sounds as if you are managing them fairly well. The onset of this disorder usually begins in the twenties. This could also be related to some hormonal imbalance or vitamin deficiency.
I would recommend you have a physical exam to rule out medical and if the symptoms persist, have an evaluation by a psychiatrist. Please let me know if you have other quesions. Thanks, Gina
thanks for your reply. Actually I first experienced these symptoms when I was 16. It's only recently that I began to consider the possibility of bipolar disorder
As with any diagnosis, it would be impossible to diagnose on line. Please follow through with the medical and psychiatric exams so you can enjoy your life to the fullest. Gina
