Manic episode (condition): Inappropriate euphoric mood
Manic episode (condition): Mania is more than just feeling good or even euphoric. With true mania, people can be described by words like "frantic", "hyperactive" or over-excited. Often a person's thoughts and speech is so "fast" that it tumbles over itself and becomes fragmented by following tangents of thoughts and ideas. Cycling between mania and depression is the hallmark of bipolar disorder (previously called manic-depression) but there are other possible causes of mania.
