What is Bipolar Disorder (BPD)?

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a mental health condition that causes extreme shifts in mood, energy levels, and activity levels. People with bipolar disorder experience periods of intense emotional states, alternating between depressive episodes and periods of mania or hypomania. These episodes can significantly impact a person’s ability to function in daily life.

The two main types of bipolar disorder are:

  1. Bipolar I Disorder: This type involves periods of severe mania and depression. Mania is characterized by elevated or irritable mood, increased energy, impulsive behavior, and decreased need for sleep. Depressive episodes involve feelings of sadness, hopelessness, loss of interest in activities, and changes in sleep and appetite.
  2. Bipolar II Disorder: This type includes depressive episodes similar to Bipolar I Disorder, but the manic episodes are less severe and are known as hypomania. Hypomanic episodes involve a milder form of mania, where the person may feel very productive, euphoric, or energetic. Despite being less severe than full mania, hypomania can still impair judgment and functioning.

The shifts between manic and depressive states can happen suddenly or gradually and can vary in duration. Some people may experience a relatively stable mood between episodes, while others may have rapid cycling, where they experience four or more mood episodes in a year.

The exact cause of bipolar disorder is not fully understood, but it is believed to be a complex interplay of genetic, environmental, and neurobiological factors. Treatment for bipolar disorder typically involves a combination of medication, psychotherapy, and lifestyle adjustments to manage symptoms and improve overall well-being. At Positive Mind Care and Research Centre, our mental health professionals create a personalized treatment plan for individuals with bipolar disorder to manage their condition effectively.

BIPOLAR DISORDER DEMOGRAPHICS

Globally, about 1% of the population is said to have Bipolar Disorder. In India, out of that population, 70% remain untreated.

SYMPTOMS

Bipolar disorder is characterized by a range of symptoms that can vary in intensity and duration. The symptoms typically manifest as distinct periods of mood changes, including depressive episodes and manic or hypomanic episodes. Here are the main symptoms associated with each phase:

Depressive Episode
  • Persistent Sadness: Feeling sad, empty, or hopeless for an extended period.
  • Loss of Interest: A marked decrease in interest or pleasure in most activities, including those previously enjoyed.
  • Fatigue: Experiencing significant tiredness or loss of energy, even after minimal activity.
  • Sleep Disturbances: Changes in sleep patterns, such as insomnia or hypersomnia.
  • Changes in Appetite or Weight: Significant changes in appetite or weight, either an increase or decrease.
  • Feelings of Worthlessness or Guilt: Feeling worthless or excessively guilty for no apparent reason.
  • Difficulty Concentrating: Problems with concentration, decision-making, and memory.
  • Thoughts of Death or Suicide: Recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal ideation, or suicide attempts.
Manic Episode
  • Elevated Mood: An unusually elevated or irritable mood, feeling “high” or euphoric.
  • Increased Energy: A significant increase in energy levels and restlessness.
  • Decreased Need for Sleep: Feeling rested and energetic after very little sleep.
  • Racing Thoughts: Rapid and often uncontrolled flow of thoughts.
  • Impulsive Behavior: Engaging in risky or impulsive activities without consideration of consequences.
  • Grandiosity: An inflated sense of self-importance or grandiose beliefs about one’s abilities.
  • Increased Talkativeness: Fast, pressured speech, and talking excessively.
  • Distractibility: Difficulty in maintaining focus and being easily distracted.

It’s essential to note that not everyone with bipolar disorder experiences all these symptoms, and the severity of symptoms can vary from person to person. Additionally, some individuals may have features of both depression and mania/hypomania simultaneously, known as a mixed episode.

How does Deep TMS Work ?

Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (Deep TMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique that has been studied as a potential treatment for various neuropsychiatric conditions, including smoking addiction. While the research in this area is still ongoing, Deep TMS has shown some promising results in helping individuals with smoking addiction. Here’s how Deep TMS may help in treating smoking addiction:

  • Targeting Reward and Craving Pathways: Deep TMS can be applied to specific brain regions associated with reward processing and cravings, such as the prefrontal cortex and the insula. These brain areas play a role in the reinforcement and motivation aspects of addiction, including smoking.
  • Reducing Cravings and Withdrawal Symptoms: By stimulating targeted brain regions, Deep TMS may help reduce cravings for nicotine and alleviate withdrawal symptoms that individuals experience when trying to quit smoking.
  • Modulating Neurotransmitters: Deep TMS can influence the release and activity of neurotransmitters in the brain, such as dopamine and serotonin, which are involved in the reward system. By modulating these neurotransmitters, Deep TMS may impact the pleasure and reinforcement associated with smoking.
  • Enhancing Self-Control and Decision-Making: Some research suggests that Deep TMS may improve cognitive functions related to self-control and decision-making. Strengthening these abilities can be beneficial in resisting the urge to smoke and making healthier choices.
  • Long-Term Effects on Craving Reduction: Studies have shown that Deep TMS sessions can lead to long-lasting effects on reducing cravings, making it a potential treatment option for maintaining abstinence from smoking in the long term.
  • Personalized Treatment: Deep TMS allows for individualized treatment by targeting specific brain regions relevant to each person’s smoking addiction. This personalized approach may lead to more effective outcomes.
