What Are Mood Swings?
Mood swings are rapid changes in mood for no apparent reason. These swings may refer to minor daily mood changes or significant mood shifts as seen with major depression or bipolar disorder. This symptom can also occur in women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome or premenstrual dysphoric disorder. The menopausal transition, specifically the time around approaching menopause or perimenopause, is associated with mood shifts in some women as well.
