Many people suffer mood swings – happy one moment, sad the next, detached another moment and so on. They never seem to be able to get a hold of their moods.
One minute you’re laughing! The next, you’re crying. Blame it on the changing hormones of pregnancy. Watch out for mood swings during your first and third trimesters — but be aware they can occur anytime. And, if you had premenstrual syndrome (PMS) before you got pregnant, be prepared. Your pregnancy may make your PMS-type mood swings more severe.
Many people suffer mood swings – happy one moment, sad the next, detached another moment and so on. They never seem to be able to get a hold of their moods. People who suffer mood swings form undesirable attachments, demonstrate a marked suicidal tendency and are generally not productive in their personal and professional lives. There are several causes for mood swings; we’ve discussed the most common causes for your study here.
Mood Swings: Psychiatric Causes
Several psychiatric conditions can cause mood swings. These conditions are known to disrupt a person’s life to the extent that the patient contemplates suicide or extreme violence. Friends and family of people who display extreme mood swings must get them evaluated for one of these psychiatric disorders.
The good news is that if diagnosed in time, most of these conditions can be treated and the person can resume a normal life. However, many people just suffer in silence, not realizing that they might have a problem. They are vastly misunderstood by family and friends and passed over at the work place.
The following is a partial list of the many psychiatric disorders that cause mood swings:
Non-Psychiatric Causes Of Mood Swings

Four days after receiving neural therapy injections in each of my ankles and feet, I had considerable improvement. It's been just over a week and I am able to work out and exercise without discomfort. I have the "pep" back in my step.

Everyone laughed when I said I was going to Idaho to heal the bulging disc in my back. But when I was able to finally lift my arms with no pain for the first time in years...they stopped laughing.
I was unsure what the journey would be like, but Dr. J and the West Clinic team have treated me like a VIP every time. The treatment as well as the experience have been first-class.

I initially came to the West Clinic for aches and pains associated with -my chosen profession, a professional rodeo cowboy. I had both my knees treated and I saw IMMEDIATE relief. That was last summer, and I haven't had any pain after traveling, during or after competing, and other rugged circumstances.
