Super rapid cycling?

Recommended Posts

is it likely that someone would have multiple hypomanic or depressive episodes during the course of one or a couple days, does cyclothymia generally entail mood cycles that fast? 

sorry if that makes no sense, my thoughts are very scattered and fast right now

Rapid cycling occurs more often in women than in men.  I've read it occurs in 10-20% of folks with BP.  However, that doesn't mean it is permanent.  For example, one might rapid-cycle one year and not for the next five years.

The key is to get help ASAP if things are mixed/scary.
