The mental disorder that causes energy fluctuations and mood disorders is Bipolar Disorder.
A person is affected with abnormal mood shifts. He has suicidal tendencies. It may cause physical changes in the Brain and Mania that turns to Depression later.

Bipolar Disorder is differentiated into two Types. Bipolar Disorder Type 1 : In this the person gets frequent episodes of both manic and depressive mood. He feels mad, depressive and hyperactive. He becomes very irritated and wild. This will affect his performance in his personal as well as in professional life. The symptoms may last for one or two weeks. However, if it is not treated the symptoms may lasts for a year also and may becomes fatal.

Bipolar Disorder Type 2 : In this a person gets frequent attacks of Hypomania. Hypomania is a mild kind of mania and not a chronic condition. There are episodes of racing and suicidal thoughts and a person feels more depressive.

Cyclothymic Disorder : It is not severe as type one and two but is a chronic condition. In Type one and two the person feels either overexcited or irritated. But in this condition he becomes irritated.
