I have wondered for a very long time if my 15 year might have bipolar disorder. He was recently hospitalized for extreme anger and rebellion and talking about suicide. When I talked to the doctor about assessing him for bipolar, he said he wondered that too, but doesn't like to give a label like bipolar. He also said my son's mood swings are fast not gradual and not likely to be bipolar. He said the grandiose ideas my son has are consistent and not just during the manic phase so that too means it may not be bipolar. Do these things rule out bipolar, or should I still insist on an evaluation? Is there a way they can find out for sure if it is bipolar disorder?
