You need to get your Thyroid hormone levels checked in such a setting. Take your neds as advised by the physician. Bipolar disorder is usually a combination of mania and depression. Two poles apart. One at a time with some lucid interval in between free of the disease. Propofol and Ketamine anaesthetics is known to induce mania in very rare instances.
