Hello. Thank you for posting.
Bipolar disorder is a condition that features extreme shifts in mood and fluctuations in energy and activity levels that can make day-to-day living difficult.
According to medical news today: Bipolar disorder does not appear to have a single cause but is more likely to result from a range of factors that interact.
Some studies have suggested that there may be a genetic component to bipolar disorder. It is more likely to emerge in a person who has a family member with the condition.
Patients with bipolar disorder often show physical changes in their brains, but the link remains unclear.
Brain-chemical imbalances: Neurotransmitter imbalances appear to play a key role in many mood disorders, including bipolar disorder.
Hormonal problems: Hormonal imbalances might trigger or cause bipolar disorder.
Environmental factors: Abuse, mental stress, a "significant loss," or some other traumatic event may contribute to or trigger bipolar disorder.
One possibility is that some people with a genetic predisposition for bipolar disorder may not have noticeable symptoms until an environmental factor triggers a severe mood swing.
See your doctor if you feel you may be suffering from bipolar disorder.
