What is hysteria disorder?

Almost everyone knows little about hysteria. But there are many different ways to describe it.  It only happens to unmarried adult boys and girls, and people think that their character is not good. But in reality, it affects both boys and girls, married and unmarried. So this misconception should be removed from the minds of the people.

Modern psychiatrists no longer use the word ‘hysteria‘.  Now it is Conversion Disorder being said.

The disease is more common in women than in men and is similar in both boys and girls in adolescence.

what is hysteria


Some mentally retarded people feel helpless without being able to properly solve their own mental problems or worries. They turn this mental disorder into a physical illness to attract the attention or reassurance of their family members and friends. But the patient does not know it. Behind this lies the mental state of the patient’s subconscious mind.


These people are often self-centred.  They always try to fulfil their desires. They love to mingle with others.


Feeling helpless and sad when you don’t care about others.

1. The disease begins suddenly.

2.  The onset of guilty feelings about having the affair, in the first place, further zaps whatever energy the partner having the affair might still have left. 

3. The symptoms of the disease are not voluntary.

4. Often the patient draws the attention of his or her relatives.

5.  Examining the symptoms of the disease is considered to be a physical or neurological disease, but a closer examination reveals that it is not a physical or neurological disease but a mental illness.


There are many types of symptoms.


Symptoms include a loss of consciousness and loss of limb mobility. Usually, the hands or feet do not move. Some patients complain of poor self-esteem and poor health.  But eye and ear tests show that they are fine.

Muscle symptoms

Unnatural walking, weak muscles, limbs, vibrations of some limbs, paralysis, fainting, etc. There is a lot of confusion about not knowing the difference between epilepsy and hysteria.

So we need to know something about these two types of diseases.

Fainting due to epilepsy

1. Excessive electrical current can be seen anywhere in the brain. 

2. This type of fainting is almost always the same.

3. It can happen anywhere.  Here the patient’s tongue is likely to be amputated. 

4. Injuries can also occur when the patient is fainting.

5. This can happen at any time.  May also fall asleep.

6. When fainting, the patient may have diarrhoea and urination.

7. The patient does not talk when fainting.

8. The patient faints for a short time.  (1-2) minutes.

9. When fainting, the patient almost tilts his head to one side.  When the eyes are open, it looks like a squirrel.

10. E.E.G.  This leads to irregularities.

11. The prolactin content in the blood increases.  (About 1 to 20 minutes after fainting).

Fainting due to hysteria

  1. It’s different at different times.  The patient seems to have deliberately.

2. This usually happens at home or in a safe place.

3. The patient is not likely to have a tongue.  The patient is rarely injured.

4. It never happens in sleep.

5. Diarrhoea is rare when fainting.

6. Talking can occur when the patient is fainting.

7. Fainting for a long time (about 5-10 minutes) sometimes lasting hours.

8. The patient shakes his head. 

9. Often do not meet with the people in front.

10. E. E. G. There are no irregularities.

11. Prolactin does not increase in the blood.


The disease is usually treated with medication to reduce grief. That is Escitalopram, paroxetine.

As a result, the patient can strengthen his or her mind and reduce mental imbalances. However, practical therapy (behaviour therapy) and psychiatric treatment (psychotherapy) are the main treatments for the disease. Psychiatrists try to solve the patient’s subconscious mind.  The disease is explained to family and other relatives.

Giving too much attention to the patient at such a time, lovingly fulfilling all his or her wishes, increases the disease. It is understood that the person should be treated equally during the illness and in the absence of the disease and not pay too much attention to the patient. It is recommended to bring a healthy atmosphere within the family and solve the patient’s chronic problems.
