Mood swings refer to changes in mood from high to low or vice versa. Whilst everyone experiences mood swings to a certain degree, extreme mood swings can be characteristic of mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, and are a symptom of other mental illnesses including schizoaffective disorder and personality disorders.
If you are worried about how serious your mood swings are, please make an appointment to see your GP.
