Thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Experiencing mood swings is not necessarily a bipolar disorder because normally a person's mood can indeed change depending on internal factors (eg hormonal changes, physical and psychological stress levels) or external factors (eg the influence of other people's words, socioeconomic conditions).
A person is said to have bipolar disorder if he experiences mood swings that fluctuate and drastically, for example suddenly becoming very happy from previously sad. Bipolar disorder has two phases, namely the mania phase (up phase); where the sufferer looks very excited and energetic; and the depressive phase (down phase); where the sufferer will look sad, gloomy, and lose interest in daily activities. The cause of this condition is not known with certainty. Further examination by a psychiatrist / psychiatrist is needed to determine whether you suffer from bipolar disorder or not. Your doctor will need to ask you a number of questions to assess your mental health.
In the meantime, please try to manage psychological stress well, for example by doing relaxation techniques or doing things that please you. Keep yourself close to your family or friends. If you have any particular concerns or disturbing thoughts, communicate these with those closest to you, don't keep them to yourself.
Hope this information is useful.
