What are the problems with Bipolar Disorder Diagnosis?
Presently, there is no lab or medical test that would give a right conclusion that a person is suffering from bipolar disorder. This makes it complex to findout if the symptom related with bipolar disorder that are present to the victim are indeed signs of this mental illness. Meanwhile, it is very important to findout whether or not this person really has bipolar disorder to provide the right treatment. Furthermore, the symptoms that could be clear indications of bipolar disorder can be related to other identifiable physical or psychological illness. This makes it more difficult to give treatment since the focus is to give relief to the existing physical pain; rather than identifying if the patient is suffering from any psychological problem. And to complicate these things even further, a person who shows physical signs of bipolar disorder goes to medical doctors rather than a psychiatrist.
