hard to concentrate, read, drive and symtoms of anzity? not able to sleep. feeling hungry and wore out?


Hi Kate,

Hypomania of itself shouldn't make you feel light headed and dizzy but it's quite possible to feel these symptoms as a result of hypomania. What I mean by this is the possibility that your new found energy could sometimes eat away at your reserves so you do too much, perhaps forget to eat or drink properly, and your blood sugar levels start to fall.

The other symptoms you describe sound very much like those you'd expect from hypomania. You might find this sharepost interesting. It's called FLIGHTY - a new way to identify hypomania .
