Ive been extremely sad and suicidal. Ive slept at least twelve

Customer Question

I've been extremely sad and suicidal. I've slept at least twelve hours a day and still woke up exhausted and I've been eating non stop. Also I've had a few days where I've been really really happy. I run around like a crazy person and talk a lot and sometimes get distracted and speak about something completely unrelated. I can't think straight everything just comes out so quickly I can't say things fast enough to keep up with my thoughts. When I'm that happy I do stupid things like get really really drunk. Which is so not like me. This has been going on for a few years. Could I be bipolar?

Dr Vikas :

Hello

Dr Vikas :

These symptoms you have mentioned could be suggestive of Bipolar disorder.

Dr Vikas :

You can try a online screening quiz for Bipolar disorder as it can give a hint about the possibility of Bipolar disorder in your case.

Dr Vikas :

I am giving you the link below for that

Dr Vikas :

Just try this quiz and kindly let me know about your score

JACUSTOMER-zooubfst- :

I got 54

JACUSTOMER-zooubfst- :

How will a quiz help though

Dr Vikas :

Thanks for your reply and trying the quiz. As you must have noticed that the score of 54 is very high and there are high chances that you could be indeed suffering from Bipolar disorder.

Dr Vikas :

Have you ever consulted a psychiatrist / general physician or took any medicines in past?
