Check elsewhere within Health24, and you should find, eg in the Mind Section, more information about the routine symptoms of Bipolar Disorder, both in the Depressive episodes, and the Manic. But remember the time-scale. In Bipolar Disorder, one swings into a depression for at least days, usually weeks or months at a time. Mood swings within a day is not Bipolar Disorder, but an unstable mood with other causes. The best way to clarify tis would be to see a shrink for an assessment and advice based on the results of that.
