That's a very broad question. If you have bipolar disorder, you will have had previous episodes, and will know what, in your specific case, are the early symptoms of a new episode. If you are wondering whether you might have a bipolar disorder, of course only a proper expert assessment can clarify that. Depressions start as any other depression does, with persistent low mood, energy, and so on, gradually getting worse and without much relief ; hypnomanic episodes can be more sneaky, starting, perhaps, with increased energy and loss of judgement, so that you buzz around doing all sorts of stuff, thinking its brilliant when it actually isn't.
