Short Description of Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder previously known as manic depression is a mental health condition that features extreme mood swings such as emotional highs (mania and hypomania) and lows (depression). Episodes of the condition occur rarely or at several times a year. While most patients experience some emotional symptoms in between episodes, there are some that may not experience anything at all.
Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder
Mania and Hypomania
- Abnormally upbeat, jumpy or wired
- Increased activity, energy or agitation
- Exaggerated sense of well-being and self-confidence (euphoria)
- Decreased need for sleep
- Unusual talkativeness
- Racing thoughts
- Poor decision-making — for example, going on buying sprees, taking sexual risks or making foolish investments
Major Depressive Episode
- Depressed mood, such as feeling sad, empty, hopeless or tearful (in children and teens, depressed mood can appear as irritability)
- Marked loss of interest or feeling no pleasure in all — or almost all — activities
- Significant weight loss when not dieting, weight gain, or decrease or increase in appetite (in children, failure to gain weight as expected can be a sign of depression)
- Either insomnia or sleeping too much
- Either restlessness or slowed behavior
- Fatigue or loss of energy
- Feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt
- Decreased ability to think or concentrate, or indecisiveness
- Thinking about, planning or attempting suicide
About Bipolar Disorder
Are you a person that feels very happy and outgoing or at times extremely irritable and on some days just plain sad or anxious without any obvious reasons? If these symptoms makes it hard for you to sleep, function, stay focused and get things done you may have a mental condition called bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is a lifelong but treatable mental disease. It is either chronic or episodic which means it happens occasionally and at times irregular intervals. It causes unusual, often extreme and fluctuating changes in a person’s mood, energy, ability to focus or concentrate and activity. Bipolar disorder is also known as manic-depressive disorder or manic depression back in the day. While it is true that everyone has their ups and downs, patients with bipolar disorder take it to the extreme level. For patients undergoing manic episodes, they might feel very happy, irritable or “up” and then followed by a marked increase in level of activity. For depressive episodes, the patient will exhibit symptoms of sadness, indifference and hopelessness, in line with a low activity level. While some can experience hypomanic episodes, which is quite similar to manic ones but are less severe and troublesome.
For most patients the condition begins or develops during late adolescence (teenage years) or in early adulthood. Sometimes the disease can manifest in children as well. While the symptoms come and go, it usually requires lifetime treatment and does not go away on its own. The disease is an important factor in suicide, job loss and family problems, but therapy and proper treatment can lead to a better prognosis.
Etiology of Bipolar Disorder
The actual cause of the condition is not yet known to science but research suggests there is no real single cause. A combination of factors may contribute to the development of the disease.
It is a known fact that this brain disorder runs in families and the research shows that it is mostly due to genes. People with certain genes are more than likely to develop bipolar disorder compared to others. A lot of genes are involved and no single gene can cause the disorder. However, it is not only genes that are the singular cause as some studies show that identical twins have found that even one twin develops the condition, the other one does not. While people with a sibling or parent with the mental condition are more than likely to develop the disease. However, most people with a family history will also not develop the condition.
Brain Structure and Function
Research shows that the brain structure and function of patients with bipolar disorder are different compared to those that do not have it or other psychiatric conditions. By discovering the nature of these neurological changes, doctors will be able to better understand the disease and in the future can help predict which kinds of therapy and treatment procedures are best. As of the moment, diagnosis is based on the symptoms presented by the patient rather than laboratory tests like brain imaging and others.
Types Bipolar Disorder
There are three basic types of bipolar disorder and all of them involve clear changes in mood, energy and level of activity. The moods range from periods of extremely “up, elation and energized behavior or increased activity levels (manic episodes) to very sad, “down,” hopeless, or low activity-level periods (depressive episodes). Patients with bipolar disorder may also have euthymic or normal mood that alternates with depression. 4 or greater episodes of mania or depression in a year is called “rapid cycling.”
Bipolar I Disorder – Patients with this type have at least one manic episode that may be preceded or followed by a hypomanic or major depressive episodes. In some cases, the mania might trigger a break from reality called psychosis.
Bipolar II Disorder – Patients have at least one major depressive episode and at least one hypomanic episode, but no manic episode as of yet,
Cyclothymic Disorder — Patients have had at least 2 years or one year in children of many periods of hypomania symptoms and periods of depressive symptoms but are less severe compared to major depression.
Other Kinds – These include bipolar and related conditions caused by certain drugs or alcohol or because of a medical condition like Cushing’s disease, MS or stroke. Treatment of the underlying condition can help alleviate the disorder.
Bipolar II disorder is not a milder form of bipolar I disorder but actually a separate diagnosis. While it is true that the manic episodes of bipolar I disorder can be quiet dangerous and extreme, patients with bipolar II disorder can be depressed for longer periods that can result to significant impairment. While the condition can occur at any age, it is diagnosed typically during the teenage years or early 20s. The disease symptoms can vary from person to person and can also be different over time.
