Causes & Symptoms
Women are generally the victims of this disorder which occurs in the young age, particularly to those who cannot satiate their sex hunger but the symptoms disappear soon after marriage in most of the cases. It has no relation to sex disorders, rather mental disturbance is a predominating cause. There is no froth at the month (as in epilepsy), the patient falls to the ground without shrieking sound, and slips into coma rather gradually. If there is no unconsciousness, the patient wails.
Corrective and Preventive measures
No medicine can prove effective unless the underling cause has been singled out. Take the patient into confidence, reassure her of quick recovery, build up confidence, provide congenial and healthy environs.
Consult your physician about suitability and requisite dose for the most suitable remedy.
