Symptoms & Causes of Bi-Polar Disorder
The main symptoms of bipolar disorder are alternating episodes of extreme euphoria, or mania, and major depression. With treatment, many people with the condition can work, study, and live a full and productive life. However, some people stop taking their medication or choose not to take it.
Symptoms of bipolar disorder can be difficult to identify in children and teens. It’s often hard to tell whether these are normal ups and downs, the results of stress or trauma, or signs of a mental health problem other than bipolar disorder. If your teen or child is having extreme mood swings that differ from their usual mood swings, it may be time to see a doctor.
Some Symptoms of Bi-Polar Disorder

- “racing” thoughts that come and go quickly, and bizarre ideas that the person may act upon
- High highs and low lows
- Insomnia, issues sleeping

If you have any symptoms of depression or mania, see your doctor or mental health professional. Bipolar disorder doesn’t get better on its own. Getting treatment from a mental health professional with experience in bipolar disorder can help you get your symptoms under control.

For most people, exercise can have a positive effect on their mood. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins, which are known as the brain’s “feel-good” chemicals. Over time, higher levels of endorphins can make you feel better. This is why exercise is often recommended for people with depression. Exercise can also help you combat stress.
