Customer Question
I’m a 27 year...

I’m a 27 year old male. I become very agitated and angry to others opposing my thoughts and opinions. It ruins relationships. I can’t help myself. Also, I’ve had depression so severely that i felt like I was having an out of body experience. I have broke down in front of friends just sobbing and curled up in fetal position on the floor. I have a mental illness but what could be the diagnosis?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?

3 years. Yes and psychiatrist diagnosed me with bipolar. I think this diagnosis is incorrect. I need your online psychiatrist to help me please with a possible correct diagnosis.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?

This all started after a complete psychotic and mental breakdown in the Marines.

Hello, I'd like to help you with your question.

I'm sorry to hear that you have been through so much. It does sound like you have symptoms of a mental health disorder. Bipolar is one possibility. However, it is unethical for mental health professionals to diagnose someone without evaluating the person face to face. We can offer suggestions of what might be going on, but it's not going to be a solid diagnosis. A thorough evaluation is needed to be accurate and that must be done in person. It also takes some time to do a complete evaluation. Please let me know if you want to continue here or if you feel seeing a professional face to face is a better option for you.

MaryAnn

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

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!!
