I have been misdiagnosed as bipolar 3 and am searching for information and answers. 4 years ago I had a manic episode that happened on the same week as my period. 4 or 5 weeks of medication and treatment got me back to work and health. I gradually stopped the medication and have not needed it for the past 4years until last week. Since then I have not had a "real" period in 4 years (i say this because i normally have long and heavy periods). Mainly due to birth control pills, pregnancy, and breastfeeding my cycle did not return. But 2 weeks ago I had my first period in four years and later that day had a manic episode that I am still trying to recover from. What is going on? How could I be fine for 4 years with no meds and then POW my period and craziness???
