Thank you for using JustAnswer.com. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.
If you are under a psychiatrist's care that individual would be the best person to give you a proper diagnosis. (S)He will be able to review your behaviors and ask you specific questions to determine the most accurate diagnosis. The most important thing is that you are getting proper treatment. For many folks having an accurate diagnosis can help with this.
You can check out the National Institute of Mental Health's website http://www.nimh.nih.gov for more information on symptoms of bipolar disorder as well as treatment.
I hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information please ask.
Thank you.
Accepts are greatly appreciated.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
