What are Mood Swings?
Mood swings are characterized by a drastic change in emotion from one side of the spectrum to the other. If one moment someone is contentedly going about their daily tasks, and the next moment is suddenly upset, irritated or downright hostile, they may suffer from mood swings.
It is completely normal to experience the wide range of negative emotions like anger, irritability, tearfulness and sadness that affect us all from time to time. But when out of control mood swings start to affect our ability to function properly in jobs or personal relationships, they become an issue worth addressing.
Who Suffers from Mood Swings?
Studies have shown that women experience mood swings twice as often as men. This is not surprising as many mood swings are the result of fluctuating hormone levels that occur in premenstrual syndrome, pregnancy or post-partum stages. There are a number of causes for mood swings (that affect both men and women) and when the underlying cause is addressed, mood swings usually dissipate.
Although mood swings are the main characteristic of bipolar disorder, the two should not be confused. Mood swings are a fairly normal part of life but become troublesome when they become excessive and frequent. The violent mood swings associated with bipolar disorder are much more severe and generally need professional treatment.
Diagnosing Mood Swings
Diagnosing mood swings involves a specialist taking account for your feelings throughout an average day. One way might be to chart your moods over the course of a week. If you experience erratic changes in your emotions or mood swings, it can help to see what set your mood swings off. This can often inform the method of treatment chosen to remedy them.
What Causes Mood Swings?
Violent mood swings can be caused by a number of different conditions and complaints. Sometimes fluctuating moods are simply our reaction to daily aggravators and certain situations, but most of the time mood swings suggest that something is out of balance or physically wrong.
Help for Mood Swings
Treatment for mood swings will depend on the severity and the underlying cause of the mood swings. The first step of action should be to make a note of when the mood swings occur and after what activities.
If you keep a strict mood diary you will probably begin to notice a pattern such as violent mood swings after eating too much sugar, the day after a night out drinking or just before your menstrual cycle.
This will give you some clue as to what life-style changes are necessary and may also help your doctor make a more accurate diagnosis.
