The term hysteria comes from the Greek root hystera, meaning ‘suffering in the uterus.’ Stretching back to at least as early as 1900 B.C., when ancient Egyptians are said to have attributed hysterics to the misplacement of the womb, women’s reproductive systems have long been linked with irrational emotions. Medical professionals are more likely to tell women that their symptoms are psychosomatic, a term defined as a physical disorder that is caused by or notably influenced by emotional factors.
