There are several types of bipolar and related disorders. Specific symptoms of them are different. Now let's have a look. Types of bipolar disorders and their symptoms:
  • Bipolar I disorder. You've had at least one manic episode that may be preceded or followed by hypomanic or major depressive episodes.
  • Bipolar II disorder. You've had at least one major depressive episode and at least one hypomanic episode, but you've never had a manic episode.
  • Cyclothymic disorder. You've had at least two years — or one year in children and teenagers — of many periods of hypomania symptoms and periods of depressive symptoms.
It's worth noting that symptoms can vary from person to person, and symptoms may vary over time.   Keywords: bipolar disorder symptoms; bipolar disorder+ symptoms; bipolar symptoms; bipolar symptoms medication; depressive bipolar disorder symptoms; signs bipolar disorder; bipolar symptoms signs; signs symptoms bipolar disorder

It’s a little bit complicated when it comes to the symptoms of bipolar disorder since they vary from types to types, depending on which episode the patient belongs to. There are mainly three episodes: mania, hypomania, and major depressive.

For those who belong to mania and hypomania episode, they may suffer from three or more of the following symptoms: distractibility, racing thoughts, unusual talkativeness, decreased need for sleep, increased activity, energy or agitation, being abnormally upbeat, jumpy or wired, poor decision-making, and exaggerated sense of well-being and self-confidence (euphoria).

For those who belong to the major depressive episode, they may experience symptoms such as depressed mood (feeling sad, empty, hopeless or tearful, irritability in children and teens), marked loss of interest or feeling no pleasure in all, fatigue or loss of energy, significant weight loss when not dieting, weight gain, or decrease or increase in appetite. Besides, some people report that they may suffer from either insomnia or sleeping too much, and either restlessness or slowed behaviors. they usually can’t concentrate, always feel worthless or excessively guilty, and may even think about planning or attempting suicide.

It’s worth mentioning that the most prominent symptoms in children and teenagers may include severe mood swings that are different from their usual mood swings.
Take the meds. You can go to Overeaters Anon for weight help... But not if you hit a major down and suicide! Always take the meds. We do.too much damage to family and friends otherwise when high and when down. It's great to be sane. Try it!
Mine isn't an answer but more of a question.
I have been experiencing the episodes of overwhelming fear or feeling like I'm going to go crazy. While I'm experiencing this I can't talk to anyone and I feel as if I am losing air. I can even tell when one is coming for a few days ahead of time. It's the most awful feeling I've ever had. I need medication Wich one will help?
Have you been diagnosed with bipolar? If it's bipolar, you have to get meds from your dr. It sounds like anxiety to me, though. This is to Vanessa.
Hyper sexuality
Definitely definitely a symptom !  You are so correct !!
Yea or the opposite and your gf is hyperactive... it’s rough
Damn thas shitty asf dump the hoe man you don’t deserve that
Please explain the sexual bi pilot effects and how it relates
While there isn't a clear-cut definition or criteria for being hypersexual, for a person with bipolar disorder, it means being more focused on sex and risky sexual behaviors than the person normally is. What's significant is the change or difference from the normal behavior.

People with bipolar disorder who are experiencing hypersexuality may:

Have multiple sex partners
Think about sex constantly
Have one-night stands
Be more interested in pornography
Notice a difference in their sexual behaviors
Engage in other reckless behaviors, like driving too fast or gambling

You may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.
Several types of medications can help improve symptoms of PTSD:
Antidepressants. These medications can help symptoms of depression and anxiety. They can also help improve sleep problems and concentration. The selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) medications sertraline (Zoloft) and paroxetine (Paxil) are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for PTSD treatment.
Anti-anxiety medications. These drugs can relieve severe anxiety and related problems. Some anti-anxiety medications have the potential for abuse, so they are generally used only for a short time.
Prazosin. While several studies indicated that prazosin (Minipress) may reduce or suppress nightmares in some people with PTSD, a more recent study showed no benefit over placebo. But participants in the recent study differed from others in ways that potentially could impact the results. Individuals who are considering prazosin should speak with a doctor to determine whether or not their particular situation might merit a trial of this drug.
