Irritability in Adults

Irritability in Adults | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

Symptoms of irritability depend on the cause. When a healthcare provider hears that someone is irritable, he or she may want to know:

  • if there is a known cause
  • how the person is behaving
  • when it began
  • how long it has been going on
  • whether it is constant or comes and goes
  • what the person's usual response to problems or pain is
  • if anything makes it better or worse
  • if it occurs only at certain times of the day
  • if there are any other symptoms, such as fever, stomach upset, pain, injury, depression, sadness, or weight loss
  • if there is any history of any other illnesses, conditions, allergies, or surgeries
  • what medications the person takes
  • Other questions may be asked about eating and sleeping habits, activity level, and any other concerns the person or the family has.
