What Causes Moodiness?
Moodiness can have various causes, just like most other symptoms. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose moodiness, 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 "moodiness" as a symptom. Here are two possibilities:
- Mercury Toxicity
- Low Pregnenolone
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:
chronic mouth soreness/sores
being easily excitable
minor joint pain/swelling/stiffness
moderate cold water fish consumption
having trouble concentrating
moderate mercury toxicity
having amalgam fillings
frequent sore throats
... and more than 30 others
