I have this DX but there just isnt much info on it. Its not even in the DSM4 but will be in the DSM5

Migraines, Ovarian Cyst, repeat and multiple jaw dislocations, depression/anxiety, PTSD, and the list goes on
On Jan 17th 2008 I had a very traumatic situation ending in a colostomy. had the reversal which put me through months of hell, but better now. I have had over 12 pretty major surgeries, 100's of "procedures", my immune system is a NO GO. I've been in and out of the hospital for the last 10 years. I have no real Dx's really. I have a lot of "Psuedo" (sp?) symptoms, so they say. This in just 24 years and its just half the story. (Violin's playing yet?)

Meds: Celexa, Klonopin, Serequel, Hydrocodone)

 May God give you a reason to smile today, an extra reason
to laugh, and bring joy to your soul.

I looked it up and found this:

Bipolar III Disorder - BPIII for short - is known as Cyclothymia. It is a long-term condition where the person's moods cycle between hypomania - a "high" that can be mild to fairly severe but does not include delusions, hallucinations or other psychotic features - and depression, also mild to fairly severe but not incapacitating or suicidal.

Does this sound like you? Cyclothymia can progress into BPI or II if left untreated...
(a pdoc told me this years ago.)
