Piblokto is also known as “Arctic hysteria”.The translation makes it easy enough to understand the disorder. It is a state of hysteria specifically experience by Arctic and Subarctic Eskimos.
In this hysterical condition, patients experience a dissociative episode characterized by a prolonged outburst of excitement. This is followed by horrifying seizures and finally a sudden coma!
If that is not bad enough, while the patient is conscious, they engage in inappropriate behavior.
This includes stripping naked and destroying property, possibly hurting themselves and others around them.
There is no definite cause for this disorder. However, researchers believe that it can be a result of either some form of malnutrition or food toxicity.
