Types of Mood Disorders
Depression is a common mood disorder that affects people in different ways. Common symptoms of a depressive disorder include a lack of pleasure in life, persistent feelings of sadness or emptiness, changes in appetite and sleeping habits and feelings of worthlessness or guilt.
Many people also experience physical symptoms like aches and pains, headaches and digestive problems. In severe cases, some people experience suicidal thoughts and may attempt suicide.
Depression stems from a range of causes. Symptoms may be triggered by an event, such as a death or loss, or living through an assault or trauma. Hormones may also exacerbate major depression disorder, particularly in the event of post-partum depression after childbirth.
People with bipolar disorder experience contrasting episodes of mania or depression that affect their energy, mood and ability to perform normal daily tasks.
In a manic episode, one may experience high energy and a need for increased activity. They feel emotions such as elation, irritability, agitation or restlessness. They may have trouble sleeping or engage in risky behavior. In a depressive episode, the energy dissipates and depression symptoms become very intense.
There are different types of bipolar disorder that vary in length, frequency, and intensity of manic and depressive episodes. For instance, people with bipolar I and bipolar II disorder both have episodes of mania and depression. But in bipolar II disorder, manic episodes are less severe.
Substance-Induced Mood Disorder
Some people who are addicted to alcohol or drugs develop a substance-induced mood disorder. Depression is a common issue for addicts since addiction leads to abnormal brain chemistry that may heighten the risk of depression.
Symptoms may be similar to those of bipolar disorder. For instance, drugs such as amphetamines and methamphetamine can cause manic episodes.
