Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Anytime you have episodes of Mania or Hypomania it is almost always going to be attributed to a Bipolar Disorder. May I ask, do your mood cycle from depression for a few weeks to months than to Mania for a few days to weeks, and then back to Depression? Also in between any cycle of depression and mania, do you have periods of euthymia (normal mood functioning with no depressive or manic symptoms)?
