    Hi @gillo141610 welcome to the community, if you are concerned about your mental health, the best place to start is seeing your GP.

    You say you have suffered with mental health issues for a long time, do you have a contact with the mental health team who you could discuss your feelings about bipolar with?

    Hi @gillo141610 I completely agree with @Sam_Scope and suggest you begin with your GP. The symptoms you describe could be linked to a number of conditions other than bipolar, for example generalised anxiety. This is why, though it's good to read up and to be aware of how your mental health is, it's important to seek professional help when things aren't feeling right. Best of luck.
