Pupil size in relation to Bipolar
By September 16, 2011 at 7:26 pm 4,233 4
I have been noticing that sometimes my pupils and my husband's pupils become enlarged when one would expect them to be reacting to the amount of light hitting them. So instead of getting bigger in the dark and smaller in the light, they are big period.
I have heard that people with Bipolar will have large pupils when in a manic state. This is coming from family members who have worked with plenty of Bipolar people. This is how my husband and I recognize just by looking at the other one that they are manic. It's like the emotions caused by the chemicals make the pupils dilate.
However, I haven't heard of medical proof of this.
Is there any truth to it?
Does anyone else ever experience this?
I'm very curious to know what you all think/know on this topic!
