    I had those same symptoms when I was manic. Are you on a mood stabilizer ? I would definitely talk to your doctor .

    I don't have hypomania but I definitely experienced these same symptoms while in a manic episode. Sometimes antidepressants can trigger manic episodes. For me, it was Lexapro. Definitely talk to your doctor so you can get on the path to an official diagnosis.

    feeling energetic while getting little sleep is a classic sign of mania/hypomania. the other symptoms you’ve mentioned are definitely things i’ve experienced too. when i’m hypomanic, i feel 10x more optimistic than before, i feel capable of doing all of the little things i normally couldn’t do, and it feels great for a while. but after a couple of weeks it always ends in an emotional outburst/panic attack where i also have uncontrollable crying as well as urges to sh. after that, i get thrown into a depressive episode. i would definitely bring these symptoms up to a doctor. even if it’s not hypomania, it’s still affecting your life negatively so it’s worth mentioning!
