Manic & hypomanic: Episodes do not always include little need for sleep. That is just one of several possible symptoms, including high energy, euphoria, impulsive behavior, unrealistic or risky ideas and plans, rapid speech & thinking. A hypomanic period may be quite productive and not recognized as a problem.
