  There are many types of mood changes that can occur in bipolar and rapid cycling (sudden mood changes from manic to depressed) and mixed states (combinations of mania and depression such as an agitated mixed state where a person can feel like they are "angry at the world") are two that might describe some aspects of what you are concerned about but only a psychiatrist would understand this in full. However it would be worthwhile to speak to one and explain what is happening. Also it is worthwhile to keep a mood tracker and print out the results for them so they can have a better understanding of how things vary on a daily basis. In the meantime these websites have some information that you might find useful and could then discuss with a psychiatrist:

Check on google and see if there is a mental health care crisis center in your area. You can call and ask for help or go in for an evaluation. Maybe you need some mood stabilizers.

Yes if you are still experiencing sudden mood changes the medication you are on ( if you are on any ) is perhaps not working too well! It can be increased or changed. All of us bipolars tdnd to be tweaking the meds to try to get some stability.. don't just accept it go see your doctor.
Take care!
