Relationship Between Mood Swings And Sleep Disorders?
Disorders of fluctuating mood changes, sometimes happy (manic) but can suddenly become sad (depression) are known as bipolar affective disorder (GAB). In the manic period, a person will feel happy, enthusiastic, and energetic, while during depression he tends to be moody, sad, lethargic, lose interest, and even attempt suicide. Judging from your complaint, there is a possibility that it leads to GAB, although it should be confirmed first through a direct examination.
Manic or depressive conditions are known to affect a person's sleep. Patients with GAB often experience insomnia (difficulty sleeping), hypersomnia (excessive sleep), especially in depressive episodes, to sleep apnea (feeling short of breath when sleeping). There are indeed some experts who prove the link between GAB and sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis itself is a condition where the body cannot move, usually occurs when waking up although it can also appear when starting to fall asleep. In addition to GAB, several factors increase the risk of sleep paralysis:
Sleep deprivation Changes in sleep schedule Sleeping in the supine position Side effects of drugs for hyperactive children Because your complaints are disturbing enough, it is recommended that you consult a psychiatrist immediately. In addition to psychotherapy, drugs such as anti-manic, anti-depressants, or other drugs depending on the indication.
There's nothing to be afraid of with sleep paralysis. Start the treatment by addressing the GAB that you may be suffering from. Also train so that you always sleep on schedule every day, not late. Set a side sleeping position and avoid excessive caffeine consumption.
