Frequent mood swings.

Dear Doctor,  I am facing the problem of frequent mood swings. I easily get depressed followed by short period of happiness and then back to depression. I stopped going to college and start remembering bad incidences and start crying over them. Sometimes I am hyperactive without any reason.  It makes me feeling bad. I can not concentrate on my studies too.

Thank you

    Welcome to MediMetry
    It seems that you are going through a tough phase in life.... It is clinically called depression... And is going to need treatment in terms of medicines and counselling.Meanwhile follow these tips such as

    Consider why you might feel depressed.
    Exercise releases happy-making endorphins, which act like natural anti-depressants.
    Never skip a meal.
    Avoid caffeine, which reduces serotonin levels.
    Expose yourself to sunlight, which can boost mood and increase Vitamin D levels
