I understand. My problem is that I have multiple medical conditions which might be contributing to my "hypomania". Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome: a type of dysautonomia -- with a long list of possible symptoms including: anxiety, cognitive impairment, and feeling "wired".
I also have Fibromyalgia, Periodic Limb Movement Disorder/RLS (disturbed sleep), TMJD, osteoporosis, and allergies, and a recent bout of premature atrial complexes -- which I've never had before. I was told that many people have them and that they are benign (usually).
I guess I'll have to get multiple opinions, then make a decision on what "trail to go down."
