I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder a while ago, but I think I was misdiagnosed. Nobody seems to listen to me when I tell them this. My mood changes drastically multiple times per day, as opposed to weekly or monthly like I understand Bipolar Disorder to be described as. I was diagnosed at a psychiatric hospital after the doctor asked me 2 questions about my mood. What should I do?

      I agree it doesn’t hurt to get a second opinion. Also yes rapid cycling can happen. Go see a doctor

      Personality disorders can be mistaken for bipolar and have rapid mood swings. Even in rapid cycling it means a new manic high or low within 6 months. A manic episode is 4-6 weeks minimum and is a huge misunderstanding

      What do you believe you have ?? And it’s ok for a second opinion

        @LixiKat I'm not sure, it just seems like there's a lot of symptoms of bipolar disorder that I do not have

      It doesnt hurt to get a second opinion but bipolar disorder can have rapid cycling mood changes which happen within a 24 hour period (multiple mood changes a day)
