My fiance,  20 years old went through the same thing, turned out he was just so depressed and anxious it gave of bipolar like moods. Just make sure you explore right diagnosis's before you starts meds, if you choose to. he's been on Lexapro  just was lowered down to 10mg daily, for panic attacks, random depression periods, mood swings, insomnia which sometimes turned into over sleeping randomly during the day just to get sleep, and inability to concentrate. I've been great ever since! I wish you the best of luck feel free to message me for advice or someone to talk to any time! :-)

Well these "bipolar" like symprtoms have been with me for a loooonnngggg.... time... Even at the age of 9 I remember feeling deep depression. I always felt strong, (for thinking of suicide but being in the right mind to never do so even at te age of ten) but I have had mood swings, unexplained anxiety, stress, feeling unable to controll myself...etc for a long time. I am only now requesting testing from my new Primary Care Doctor. We will see...
