I've got my own personal ways of telling.

For me, if I get permanently aroused physically, I'd better look closely at med changes. Wind hurts my skin, sheets seem unbearably heavy and scratchy. I feel itchy-jumpy. I sleep less, talk more and faster, get "enthusiasms", etc. It feels good at first, but eventually the itchy-jumpy-crawly feeling starts and I can't bear it and start getting self destructive thoughts. For me, it's pretty much related to medications or sleep deprivation.

I'm not sure how much those symptoms are idiosyncratic. I see some of them in the textbook definitions but not all of them. I think they say rapid pressured speech, grandiosity, little need for sleep, hmmm... can't recall what else. Similar to mania, but not as extensive.
