I don't know, this might be a simplistic representation of the concept. It would be AS simplistic as saying that every presentation of anxiety, agitation, or anger were a symptom of DEPRESSION (which of course they are not - mood states shouldn't be immediately classed as pathological in the first place).
Interesting thread though.
I was Dx'ed bipolar spectrum, by a very enlightened pdoc, and am much better for it because the Tx is winding up more effective.
