In correlation to the symptoms of MD,

Bipolar disorder has symptoms such as:

psychmotor agitation - pacing back and forth

racing/intrusive thoughts

non-linear disorganized thought patterns

heightened creativity, among other things.

Because of this I wonder if MD may have a comorbidity with Bipolar Disorder.

There are two types of bipolar disorder, Type 1 with full-blown mania and possible psychosis, and Type 2 with hypomania (mild mania) and lesser risk of psychosis. Type 2 often gets misdiagnosed as depression due to hypomania often going unnoticed by patient and others. Sometimes a diagnosis of Bipolar disorder is made when the patient fails to respond to antidepressants, or gets sent into a manic/hypomanic episode. 

I wonder if some people with MD may unknowingly also have Bipolar 2 due to it's usually subtle nature (as in it gets mistaken for  depression).
