  2. Intense emotions: During a mood swing, the emotions experienced can be overwhelming and disproportionate to the situation.

  3. Duration: Mood swings can last for hours, days, or even weeks, depending on the underlying cause.

  4. Interference with daily life: When mood swings disrupt relationships, work, or daily functioning, it becomes necessary to seek help.
