Are mood swings common with everyone or do I need to visit a psychiatrist ?
Of course moods change because of situation or agitation,that's normal human behavior.
But if your mood changes for no apparent reason,often and unpredictably I would consult a professional.
it depends. how often are they? daily? more than once/day? sounds like it might possibly be bi-polar (one of my sisters has it). i'm not a psychiatrist but i see one every month for something else. i'd suggest that you research bi-polar before making any decisions. there are a lot of good mental health web sites where you can look up your symptons..
there is a good hub about bi-polar:
Bipolar Disorder Symptoms|Online Bipolar Tests|Treatment by BenajminB that I think will be helpful.
hope this helps to at least get you going in the right direction.
It’s depend on personal circumstances, if mood swings suddenly, otherwise, if it continue ‘mood swings’ after having simple tablets ‘Paracetamol’, more than a month then I thinks you should seek medical advices at once. Any personal worry or sorrow should be voided and or ignored by? Try to spend times on something you enjoy yourself?
Like cliches, avoid psychiatrists and psychologists like the plague.
If you didn't have mood swings, you would need to see a doctor. Mood swings are normal.
My aunt has Biopolar disorder and she seems perfectly fine all of the time. She's just a little more sensitive to her surroundings. If you feel like you need to go see a doctor, do so.
You might be the best judge of it when you are down. If you come close to thinking about suicide, I would recommend to visit a doctor. The only recommendation (speaking from bitter experience), check around and find the most reputable doctor.
If you are hypo-manic (somewhat high), you can control yourself, but you realize something is wrong. If you go into full mania, rely on your closest relatives. Judging by your question - you have not been there, it is a nightmare.
I am bipolar and I have a story to tell and I plan to, but not in one single answer. Don't rely on people who say that bipolar disorder is the invention of psychiatrists. It is not. Denial is not going to help.
I was in trouble until I found a really good doctor and I only found him because I was open about my story. I did not advertise that I was bipolar, but I did not shy away from sharing my story (besides other people can see abnormalities - you will get a lot comments). Eventually one woman recommended me my doctor.
The saddest thing - psychiatrists are not created equal. The first thing I said to my current one was "I don't trust psychiatrists!" I was not manic, I was suicidal.
Don't diagnose yourself, by the way, it takes years, the average time to find the best treatment for a bipolar patient is 8 - 10 years. There is no shame in it (the illness in not a choice). The only thing that is common among bipolar patients - they run away from treatment.
I hope you don't have it, but if you do, please trust your relatives - their judgment is better than yours.
I"m a very moody person..I have to be in the mood for almost everything! I think it is a common thing with everyone.
