Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings, including manic highs and depressive lows. 

It affects thoughts, emotions, and daily functioning, requiring proper diagnosis and treatment for managing symptoms effectively. So here are some common symptoms of it.

Intense euphoria, increased energy, decreased need for sleep, rapid speech, racing thoughts, impulsive behaviour, and inflated self-esteem.

Manic Episodes

Persistent sadness, loss of interest, fatigue, changes in appetite and sleep, feelings of worthlessness, difficulty concentrating, and thoughts of death or suicide.

Depressive Episodes

Similar to manic episodes but with milder symptoms. Elevated mood, increased energy, and heightened productivity, often leading to risk-taking behaviour.

Hypomanic Episodes

Simultaneous occurrence of manic and depressive symptoms. Individuals may experience agitation, irritability, restlessness, insomnia, and a feeling of despair.

Mixed Episodes

In severe cases, individuals may experience hallucinations or delusions during manic or depressive episodes. They may have distorted perceptions of reality.


A pattern of frequent mood swings, with four or more episodes of mania, hypomania, or depression occurring within a year.

Rapid Cycling

Some individuals may experience a seasonal pattern, known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD), where depressive episodes coincide with specific seasons, usually winter.

Seasonal Patterns

Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are essential for managing bipolar disorder and reducing the impact of these symptoms on daily functioning and overall quality of life.
