Welcome to HCM!
I have gone through your question and it says that you are concerned about feeling of running thoughts sometimes..., you had anxiety
and mild depression
, and there is history of stroke
This presentation doesn't looks like anything related to organic brain syndrome
, eg., stroke etc., so, don't worry..
This appears to be a symptom of mania
...may be anxiety , but in anxiety one has more of worrying, disturbing thoughts and patient doesn't commonly come up with words of " thoughts running" ...this happens more with mania. In mania also patient can have comorbid anxiety...
I think you are on some antidepressant/ anti anxiety for your past symptoms, and now it is likely that they made you go into mania.. I'm not sure , but it is a very common cause of switch to mania from depression episode ( due to use of antidepressants ) .
Had you mentioned the treatment you are currently on, it would have helped in giving you a correct reply. But one thing is certain that you should not ignore this symptoms and discuss it with your psychiatrist
. Only after proper interviewing one can see what is happening and what medicine is to be given / or needs to be stopped.
It is an easily controllable problem, so, do not panic at all.
see your doctor.
Hope this helps you
Do feel free to ask more questions
