Emotional Stability

What Causes Emotional Instability?

Emotional instability can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'life-threatening'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • check your overall health status
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose emotional instability, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "emotional instability" as a symptom.  Here are eight of many possibilities (more below):
  • Dehydration
  • Epstein-Barr Virus
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Low Serotonin
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Vitamin A Toxicity
  • Aspartame/Neotame Side-Effects

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
occasional unexplained vomiting
infrequent daytime urination
recent onset diarrhea
occasional unexplained nausea
severe allergies to certain foods
pain when breathing
regular odd skin sensations
moderate unexplained weight gain
regular episodes of diarrhea
occasional confusion/disorientation
frequent unexplained vomiting
afternoon coffee/sugar craving
... and more than 110 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of emotional instability:
Cause Probability Status
Multiple Sclerosis 95% Confirm
Dehydration 28% Unlikely
Aspartame/Neotame Side-Effects 25% Unlikely
Low Serotonin 3% Ruled out
Hypoglycemia 2% Ruled out
Vitamin A Toxicity 0% Ruled out
Epstein-Barr Virus 0% Ruled out
Bipolar Disorder 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
