Hysteria is a psychological state, wherein the mind of a person gets affected by unmanageable fear or emotionalexcesses. Though it occurs in both the sexes, the incidence is more apparent in young women between fourteen and twenty five years of age. People struck by hysteria have less or no control over one’s acts and emotions and undergo sudden seizures of unconsciousness, with emotional outbursts every now and then. Such a behavior results in repressed conflicts within the person’s inner self.
