How severe?: We all have variability in our moods but if you have significant up's and down's - I would recommend starting with a psychological assessment.
Dr. Frank Kuitems

Psychologist : Anybody with severe mood swings should be seen by a psychiatrist or psychologist for evaluation and treatment. Anybody with thoughts of harm to themselves or others should immediately call the one800 suicide hotline

Journal: I do not know how long you have had the mood swings; assuming they are impacting your life, i would suggest contacting a therapist & set an initial appointment, bring the journal with you & explain in detail what you have been experiencing; ideally the journal could cover a few days.
