Q:  Could I Have a Form of Bipolar

Years ago i was treated for OCD rather unsuccessfully. Recently I read a webpage on someone with dysphoric mania that seemed to describe a lot of my problems .

I have a lot of problems with irritability and distractability. I have a lot of confusion,trouble concentrating,easily bothered by things,bad temper, etc. I sometimes have innapropriate elation daydreaming but ussually its irritability and confusion .I'm disorganized almost to the point of paralysis. Its difficult to explain and if i go back to an ocd specialist they may only treat the OCD.

Could I have a form of Bipolar that could be a bigger issue? How can I find a bipolar specialist in my area to find out? I live in Greenville, North Carolina.


Dear Mr. B' --
Here are the folks in N. Carolina.  As I recall, none of these is particularly close to Greenville, but you could ask one of these folks for a "consultation" for diagnostic and treatment recommendations, then take those recommendations and that diagnostic assessment back to someone closer to you.
