来自希腊语hystera,子宫,词源同uterus.在古希腊时期的医学观点认为妇女的子宫功能失调会导致一种神经性疾病,即癔病。

hysterical (adj.)
1610s, from Latin hystericus "of the womb," from Greek hysterikos "of the womb, suffering in the womb," from hystera "womb" (see uterus). Originally defined as a neurotic condition peculiar to women and thought to be caused by a dysfunction of the uterus. Meaning "very funny" (by 1939) is from the notion of uncontrollable fits of laughter. Related: Hysterically.
