      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!

      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.

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