would that qualify as mania or hypomania or what would it be termed

i did get highs that would last a fair few hours, would that qualify as bipolar, like i know i had extremely bad depressions that lasted many many months but my highs were like a dopamine rush which lasted hours where i would ahve racing thoughts and feel great, like a rush

what diagnosis would that receive

Hmm. Could be classed as cyclothymia or perhaps you have a different condition like Borderline Personality Disorder with depressive features. After the highs stop, do you tend to even out or fall back into the depression? Are you seeing a psychiatrist and/or on any medication?
