Hello~I am so sorry you are having these feelings. Have you been to a neurologist? Maybe, just maybe, you could be experiencing a type of epilepsy, contrary to what a lot of folks think, it is not always seizures, it can manifest itself in many ways. I would certainly discuss this with your GP and see if he/she can refer you.
I hope you get the help you need. God bless. :-)
I would guess this isn't epilepsy, but anxiety. You are basically describing my life after a severe and permanent withdrawal reaction when I quit Paxil left my anxiety and depression untreatable. Anxious people often get the chills -- and the sweats. In your case, I would guess you feel insecure, leading you to fear the consequences of your getting emotional, such as angry. But you also have to consider why you're getting this angry often enough to cause enough problems to feel the need to post on here. Everything you describe are common symptoms felt by anxious and depressed people. It's not a bad thing to see a doctor of some kind to rule out physiological causes for this stuff, there are a lot of conditions that can cause it, such as thyroid problems, blood sugar problems, hormonal problems, dietary problems, etc. But it sounds to me like some therapy might help you figure out why things bother you this much that it takes such a toll on you.
Hi there. Are you currently seeing a therapist or a psychiatrist at all? If not, you really should make one of those first steps. It sounds a lot to me like you’re showing signs of Bipolar Depression. I don’t have experience with it personally, I have lived with major depressive disorder, anxiety/panic disorders, ADHD, and BPD for most of my life, but my mother has had it for most of her life before and after I was born. Because you say these mood swings can last up to 16 hours to me would point to Bipolar Depression.
The main defining characteristic of BD comes from the “manic” periods people go through. Basically, just extreme periods of highs and lows, extreme anger and frustration and negativity about everything, hopelessness, or sudden very elevated moods and happiness, very random bursts of emotions about a lot things that comes on suddenly and seemingly unprovoked. It can completely control your brain and your actions at times.
If you feel that this is something that is interfering with your day to day life and is persistent over longer periods of time, you could have it.
Obviously I’m no doctor, I’m just really familiar with a lot of all this crappy mental illness stuff, and I’ve studied psychology. If it seems like you might be experiencing these things, definitely do some research on Bipolar Depression or other Bipolar disorders and see how your experiences compare.
If it seems like a possible answer, the next step would be seeing a therapist who works with BD patients and can give you professional advice as far as treatment and feeling better! They can determine if medicine is right for you or if you can manage it through therapy. Like I said, not a shrink, but either way you should look into therapy even if you don’t think BD is what’s going on.
Hope this helped!
