Hysteria

Hysteria colloquially means ungovernable emotional excess. Modern medical professionals have abandoned using the term "hysteria" to denote a diagnostic category, replacing it with more defined categories, such as somatization disorder. In 1980, the American Psychiatric Association split phenomenology captured by the "hysteria" construct into discrete chapters on conversion and dissociative disorders. While the word hysteria originates from the Greek word for uterus, the word itself is not an ancient one, the term "hysterical suffocation" – meaning a feeling of heat and inability to breathe, was instead used in ancient Greek medicine; the Greeks believed that the uterus moves through a woman's body strangling her and inducing disease. This suggests an physical cause for the symptoms but, by linking them to the uterus, suggests that the disorder can only be found in women. Hysteria was thought to manifest itself in women with a variety of symptoms, including: anxiety, shortness of breath, insomnia, nervousness, as well as sexually forward behaviour.

These symptoms mimic symptoms of other more definable diseases and create a case for arguing against the validity of hysteria as an actual disease, it is implied that it is an umbrella term for an indefinable illness. One of the early definitive works on hysteria was Paul Briquet's study involving 400 hysterical patients from 1849 to 1859. Through the 20th century, the label hysteria was applied to a mental, rather than uterine or physical, affliction. In modern usage, the term hysteria connotes mass panic. Hysteria was associated with events such as the Salem witch trials; the term hysterical, applied to an individual, can mean that they are emotional or irrationally upset. Gilman, Sander L.
