Cyclothymia

Post by SJA on Thu Jun 02, 2011 5:45 am

Any one else been told they might/have this?

Cyclothymic disorder is a mild form of bipolar disorder (manic depressive illness) in which a person has mood swings over a period of years that go from mild depression to euphoria and excitement.

Symptoms
Episodes of hypomania (see: Bipolar disorder) and mild depression occur for at least 2 years (1 or more years in children and adolescents)

Mood swings are less severe than in bipolar disorder, major depression, or mania

Symptoms are persistent, with no more than 2 symptom-free months in a row
