Q:  What Can Cause This


My psychiatrist says my symptoms are somewhat psychotic.  (i.e. having orgasms in my mouth and all over my body) What can cause this, what is psychosis, how is it related to bipolar rapid cycling, and any other pertinent info. I'm sorry, I just can't find it anywhere, and it doesnt seem like most bipolars get this kind of thing. Thanks.

Sincerely


Dear Ms. A'
Ah, yep, orgasms in your mouth.  Nope, haven't heard of that one before.  Sorry, I don't mean to say you aren't having some very unusual experience, you most certainly are.  But is it related to bipolar disorder?  I haven't seen that connection before, but that doesn't mean it isn't.  Is this "psychosis"?  From the way you describe it, and the rest of your paragraph, it doesn't sound like it to me, but of course that's not much to go on, so basically the answer there too is "I can't really say", sorry.
