Hysteria

Hysteria is a neurological condition that causes emotional disturbances of one form or another. People suffering may have unexplained fears, loss of self control, depression, seizures and other problems. The problem usually manifests during the teen years or early adulthood, and some types are more commonly seen in women.

Symptoms

Symptoms of an impending attack may include heavy breathing, tensing of the muscles, clenched teeth, a swelling of the veins in the neck, complaining that something is stuck in the throat or alternating quickly between crying and laughter. A strong hysterical attack can result in pain, cries of distress, seizures and blackouts. Attacks are usually very sudden so it is difficult to get immediate medical assistance.

Causes

The causes of hysteria have been divided into two types: histrionic personality disorder and somatization disorders. Histrionic personality disorders cause people to act theatrically or exaggerated. They are often seen as self-centered and shallow. Somatic disorders are characterized by the patient being obsessed by an endless list of physical symptoms that don't seem to have a medical foundation. The problem may be traced to heredity, age, psychical influences, and environment.

Cautions

People who are hysterical may do injury to themselves. Take precautions.
