Bipolar Disorder - 7 Signs You Should Be Aware of

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

Bipolar Disorder - 7 Signs You Should Be Aware of

Symptoms for Bipolar disorder varies from patient to patient. Bipolar 1 and bipolar 2 can vary in terms of signs and symptoms. Both diseases have a different set of symptoms and they are diagnosed according to the merit of the symptoms.

Bipolar 1
Bipolar 1 is characterised by a manic episode. This may be followed by a hypomanic or depressive instance. Symptoms of mania can cause major impairment in life and extreme cases may require hospitalisation. Bipolar 1 patients can suffer from psychosis as well.

Bipolar 2
Bipolar 2 is characterised by a hypomanic instance that lasts for at least four days and one depressive instance lasting for a minimum of two weeks. Bipolar 2 doesn’t involve a manic episode. Frequent mood swings and violent behaviour can be major challenge in a patient’s life.

Warning signs of manic and hypomanic behaviour:
a. Quick passing thoughts
b. Unusual talkativeness
c. Distraction
d. Increased social activity
e. Inflated sense of self-esteem

Symptoms of bipolar disorder

  1. Anxious distress: Apprehensions about not finishing a task on time, feeling of restlessness, feeling of losing control, difficulty in concentrating due to distress, fearing an awful event will occur in the near future, etc., are key symptoms of anxiety distress.
  2. Melancholic features: Patients suffering from bipolar disorder like to be left alone. They may not seek pleasure in any activity and even good things may not have much effect on them.
  3. Catatonia: This is a condition wherein, a person stops reacting to the environment. Not speaking and holding unusual body positions are some signs of these symptoms. There might be a tendency of mimicking too.
  4. Psychosis: This is one of the classical symptoms of bipolar disease. It is characterised by hallucination, constant depression and delusions.
  5. Seasonal pattern: There is a pattern of manic, hypomanic and depressive episodes throughout the year. The pattern might change within a month or season.
  6. Rapid cycling: The number of mood swings can exceed four or more times in a single year.
  7. Peripartum onset: This is a condition where bipolar disorder symptoms are witnessed in a pregnant woman during pregnancy or within the four weeks following delivery.

Symptoms in children: It is difficult to find symptoms of bipolar disorder in children and teens. Along with bipolar disorder, kids are most often diagnosed with other mental health problems as well. The problems can result from stress, trauma or chemical imbalance of the brain. Perhaps the biggest symptoms of bipolar disorder in children and teens are their frequent mood swings, chronic depression and feeling of despair. There might be a tendency of oversleeping as well. Reaching out to a doctor or professional help is very necessary for cases related to children and teens. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist and ask a free question.

Depression - When Should You Visit Your Doctor for it?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Depression - When Should You Visit Your Doctor for it?

Depression can wreak havoc in anyone’s life. It not only brings relentless hopelessness, but can also alter the life of a person. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) reveals that more than 7% of young adults suffer from depression without their knowledge.

The cardinal symptoms of depression include feeling sad or disinterested in his or her surroundings for most of the time during the day. This may happen with or without nay stressor. Depression is also characterised by changes in day to day routines like having lack of sleep or more sleep, loss of appetite or eating more than needed, not getting happiness of previously pleasurable activities, getting annoyed and irritated easily, having abrupt mood swings, having feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, worthlessness, having death wishes and ideas for committing suicide etc.

If a person deals with the below mentioned symptoms for more than once a week, it is wise to visit a psychiatrist in order to treat it.

  1. Eating irregularities: Loss of appetite is very common in those suffering from depression. A person might find himself withdrawn most of the time. This results in loss of interest in cooking or eating. Too many negative thoughts can curb hunger, resulting in weakness. On the other hand, depression can also lead to overeating. Affinity towards caffeine, chocolates, and ice cream dramatically increases. Studies have shown that these food items can give a soothing feeling. This being said, they are also responsible for weight gain in a person in a very short span of time.
  2. Sleeping irregularities: A depressed person might find himself sleeping too much or too little. The disengagement from daily lives and sudden energy drop makes a person fatigued for the better half of the day, resulting in more sleep. This also serves as an escape mechanism for many. There is also the other lot who can hardly sleep due to depression. Irrational thinking and a sense of vengeance can cause this problem. This is a far worse problem. Lack of minimum amount of sleep can disturb the body’s internal clock, resulting in fatigue and tiredness.
  3. Frequent agitation: If your friends complain of frequent snapping and agitation from your end, you might be suffering from depression. A load of heavy emotion results into frequent mood swings and force a person to behave irrationally. The sense of understanding and empathy tends to take a back seat and gets replaced by irritation and pain during this phase. A person can find himself on the edge with small and little things.
  4. Challenge in concentrating: Forgetting a deadline or losing focus in work is a common tendency witnessed if faced with depression. Concentrating on a job becomes a major challenge. Since the mind is preoccupied with negative thoughts, a person portrays risky behaviour and poor decision-making. Reiteration of the same thoughts can make concentration extremely challenging for a person suffering from depression.
  5. Hard to enjoy a hobby: If a person finds it difficult to enjoy things he previously loved doing, he might be suffering from depression. Depression makes it difficult for a person to seek pleasure in fun activities. It creates a vicious cycle of despair and loneliness. Isolation from any company is what a patient of depression longs for. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a and ask a free question.

Pregnancy or child birth does not cure seizures unless, it is the cause behind them. If you had seizure during pregnancy then it is likely that after delivery you may not have seizures.

It is too early to comment on all these things unless we track the improvements in your status. If the bleed in the brain is resolving without any irreversible damage then you will certainly be able to get back to your routines soon.

Stress during studies is a common phenomena now a days. What you feel as stress is actually a fear of "not living up to your own expectations" that is you have started predicting the results in a negative way. Always remember you can never predict results, but you can study for a better one. So stop thinking of results. If you still, feel uncomfortable and stressed, do some relaxation exercises. Sleep well. If needed consult a psychiatrist for treatment and counselling so as sto reduce your stress levels.

Discharge of semen against your wish, without any control over it is a sign of premature ejaculation. This needs treatment under a psychiatrist and most of the reasons behind it remain psychological. Loss of semen may cause distress, however it is not linked to causation of any hormonal problems, so diabetes is definitely not caused by semen loss.

My problem is that ,when I don't get proper sleep, my eyes get blink, my mind is not conscious and much more .it effects my study .I can't study properly. please tell me doctor.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Epilepsy is a disorder in what ch a person has a tendency to have recurrent fits and convulsions. In most of the longstanding cases of epilepsy it is idiopathic, that is without any apparent cause. It usually occurs due to uncontrolled electrical activity of brain neurons. In some instances fit smay occur after head injuries, bleeds in brain, infections, electrolyte imbalance, lowered sugars etc. Epilepsy needs management with regular use of medications so as to control recurrent fits. This has to be an individualised treatment. Certain provocative factors like inadequate sleep, physical exhaustion, decreased oxygen in air, fasting, loud noise, scorching sun etc may precipitate fits in a known case of epilepsy. So it is advisable to refrain from such factors. For any further queries or assistance you may consult me online

Hello sir I have a habit of rocking back and forth. And it is not related with anxiety or depression. I do it all day whether im happy or sad or depressed. Please tell how can I stop it. Many doctors just say take small steps to avoid this habit. But they do not understand that I can not. My body moves involuntarily. I have no control. Suppose I try to stop I become restless and after few seconds body moves itself. There is no doctor nearby I can consult for therapy or medicines. Please help. Reasons I want to stop: 1. I spend all day home doing this as it is soothing. But this had made me a person with social anxiety which make me depressed. I have read on internet about this. 2. I cannot study without it. So I can not go in a good college out of my hometown as I can not share room with anyone in hostel nd without hostel life is not enjoyable. Hope you understood. This ruined my career. Made me depressed. If I still get any help I will drop a year and go on in my life. Hoping for a great answer. Please.

Your beginning and end of question do not correlate at all. At the beginning you say your movements are not related to anxiety and depression. But towards the end you yourself commit that you are depressed due to your inability to constrol these movements and feel anxious in social surroundings. That has even kept you away from attending colleges and staying with people in hostel. Dear Nitin, I think that is good enough reason for you to understand that these movements have become an obsession and compulsion for you to get rid of restlessness that prevails if you don't do it. You definitely need a consultation. Visit a psychiatrist in your vicinity with complete details for treatmnet. In case you need assistance online you may contact me.

Dr. what are the benefits of drinking flirt vodka green Apple can it help in reducing stress?
No. Not at all. Alcohol due to its intoxicating effect may give a feeling of momentary disinhibition that a person falsely interprets as relief from anxiety. I the long run alcohol may actually contribute to anxiety disorders in at risk individuals.

I had a first case of seizure when I was 14. My Eeg reports were abnormal and so neurologist had prescribed me 3 tablets of valprol cr 200 daily. The medication continued and the doctor had reduced the consumption from 3 to 1 tablet by the time I was 18/19. With no reported case of seizure, my medication was discontinued with me having normal Eeg. In 2010, after few years of discontinuing the medication, I had a case of seizure. This had happened in the morning, after heavy drinking the previous night and few hours of sleep. The very morning before the seizure I could feel shivers and me talking abnormally before losing consciousness. I had not informed my parents and Doctors about this binge drinking and my Eeg reports were also normal. I was again prescribed the same medicines for a year. Again, last November after a long night binge drinking I had seizure. This Sunday morning, after a year of the second attack, I had seizure in the morning after a late night party. I am not a heavy and regular drinker and I never had seizure attacks when I had consumed alcohol like this. I remember sometimes I use to get small kick type sensation if I would not have got proper night sleep or the morning after a small party. In these instances it will be like for a second, something like a small panic attack but I don't lose consciousness like I do in case of seizure attacks. Should I be worried? Should quitting alcohol help me not get any such attacks? What if I get such attacks when I am driving? Will medicines solve the problem?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
There is no doubt that you rae prone for having seizure. You has seizure episodes almost a couple of times even when you were not drinking. Alcohol consumptions, decreased sleep, hypoglycemia etc are triggers for seizures in a person who is at risk of it. Definitely quitting alcohol and having a good sleep everyday would help you protect from seizures. However you still need an evaluation from a doctor. take care

As you mentioned your friend has hypothyroidism, a deficiency of thyroxine in his circulation. This by itself may cause depressive symptoms or may aggravate an already present mood disorder like depression. He needs treatment for both hypothyroidism and depression. An optimum dose of thyroxine along with medications for depression should definitely help him out, For nay further queries you may consult me online
