During a manic high, people feel unusually great. It's common to be overly talkative, have lots of energy, and need little sleep.
Hypomania is a less severe form of mania—but it is no less important to report to your health care professional.
One of the ways to get an accurate diagnosis for bipolar disorder is to talk to your health care professional about all the symptoms you are experiencing or have experienced in the past, including any manic or hypomanic episodes. A manic or hypomanic episode is what separates a diagnosis of depression, also called major depressive disorder, from bipolar disorder.
Bipolar mania can be disruptive. However, like bipolar depression, bipolar mania can be treated effectively. Learn more about options for bipolar disorder treatment.
