Hysteria and its Symptoms

Hysteria is a term used to describe emotional excess, but it was also once a common medical diagnosis. In layman’s terms, hysteria is often used to describe emotionally charged behavior that seems excessive and out of control.

While it was once considered a diagnosable condition, hysteria was removed from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in 1980. Today, those exhibiting hysterical symptoms might be diagnosed with a dissociative disorder or a somatic symptom disorder.

Symptoms of hysteria included partial paralysis, hallucinations, and nervousness. Other symptoms often ascribed to hysteria include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Anxiety
  • Fainting
  • Nervousness
  • Insomnia
  • Sexual forwardness
  • Irritability
  • Agitation

Hysteria is one of the most prevalent diseases globally. Hysteria has a comparable prevalence among different countries (England, Switzerland, Finland, Turkey, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, the USA, and China), at 1–4% in the general population and 10% or more within psychiatric settings.
