Hysteria, Hiccups and Panic Attacks
The word hysteria has come to mean the extreme behaviour exhibited at time of high emotion. This can be positive emotion, for example delight at a pop concert, or negative emotion, for example the shock of hearing bad news. Hiccups are caused by an involuntary contraction of the diaphragm, the muscle that separates the lung and stomach cavities. They are very common and although not serious can be irritating and tiring if an attack continues.
Signs and symptoms of hysteria
First Aid for Treating hysteria
Although this type of behaviour may appear to be extreme, the affected person's feelings are very real to him or her. Hysteria is often a common, and some would argue, healthy response to situations of high stress.
First Aid for Treating hiccups
There are various suggested treatments for hiccups.
All these treatments work by increasing the level of carbon dioxide in the blood, which has a positive effect on breathing.
If hiccups persist for more than 30 minutes, or the person is exhausted, seek medical advice.
First Aid for Panic attacks
Panic attacks are sudden instances of extreme anxiety accompanied by alarming physical symptoms such as chest pains, breathing problems, sweating, stomach pains, palpitations (awareness of an abnormally fast heartbeat), dizziness and faintness. The best way to treat this is to encourage the sufferer to stay calm and to remember that the attack will soon pass. Rapid, shallow breathing can be helped by breathing into a paper bag. Relaxation exercises can help a person reduce anxiety levels. If a person has frequent panic arracks, she should see a doctor.
