Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

When it comes to bipolar disorder, there are two classes of symptoms, mania and depression, that alternate for specific episodes. These cause feelings of highs and lows.

  • Mania: restlessness, overconfidence, having loads of energy, feeling extremely happy, feeling like your thoughts are racing.
  • Depression: sadness, hopelessness, fatigue, being unable to concentrate, decreased interest in daily activities or relationships.

You may not experience these exact symptoms, as bipolar disorder symptoms can vary greatly from individual to individual. Less severe symptoms are often caused by Cyclothymic disorder, which is related to bipolar disorder.

If you’d like to know more about bipolar disorder symptoms, this article details differences between manic and depressive episodes. If you think you may be suffering from bipolar disorder, the best thing you can do is seek help from a therapist.
