Hypomanic Episode: Before, During, and After Symptoms

Hypomania is associated with bipolar 2 disorder. Signs of hypomania include noticeably elevated energy, mood, behavior, and activity levels that are markedly different from your usual state of mind.

Hypomania is referred to as a mood episode because it entails symptom exacerbation (severity) like that of a manic episode. The difference between the two is that hypomanic episodes are usually shorter and cause less disruption to everyday functioning than the manic episodes experienced in bipolar 1.

There are healthy ways of coping and self-treatments available for people experiencing hypomania.

This article will cover the signs and symptoms of hypomania, its triggers, self-treatment, and when to seek medical care. Read more in Verywell.
