I haven't been diagnosed with bipolar but have a suspicion that I am. I do suffer periods of depression and I do have a family history of bipolar (Mother and sisters). I've noticed that If I go a night without sleeping a start having feelings that resemble hypomania
-racing thoughts
-flight of idea
-lack of need for sleep
-need to speak
-higher self-esteem

These feeling usually last until I fall asleep (2-3 days) with some of the symptoms staying for a while after (The higher self-esteem). Is this hypomania? The symptoms seem to have started to last longer each time, Kinda scary

Compared with the symptoms I found on internet pages, it is. But maybe there are diseases which similar symptoms. Should be better diagnosed by a specialist, I guess.
