Mental Wellness and here is another symptom of bipolar disorder.When a person is experiencing a manic episode they will often have extremely high levels of energy. To help relieve the energy, sufferers often turn to physical activity. If someone suddenly feels the need to exercise excessively to exert energy, it may be an indication of an underlying problem if it continues in a cyclical pattern and is interrupted by long periods of lethargy.
Another way in which this symptom manifests is through compulsive sexual behavior. During a manic episode, a patient may suddenly engage in risky or excessive sex with little to no regard for possible consequences. This can lead to a whole host of other issues, including STIs and unwanted pregnancies.
