Diagnosis: Hunger Anger

Posted on

You or someone you know may suffer from this debilitating and often misunderstood condition. Recent research suggests possible genetic links. Symptoms include elevated heart rate, flushed skin, excessive salivation, and irrational emotional responses towards food.  The condition can often present itself in the form of extreme sadness, onlookers frequently mistaking the symptoms for severe depression.

Have you ever:

  • Cried when your food order was not prepared to your liking?  (For example, when your French Dip sandwich arrived with mayonnaise on it.)
  • Felt your pulse quicken while watching the sandwich maker prepare your sandwich, skimpy on the meat?
  • Felt dizzy upon arriving home to discover that the salad shop gave you a Fuji Apple Chicken salad instead of the Greek salad you’d ordered?
  • Started crying in a diner when your breakfast took too long to arrive?
  • Become inexcusably moody (or thrown a full-fledged tantrum) at the slightest sensation of hunger?

If you answered yes to one or more of the questions, you may suffer from Hunger Anger.  There is no known cure. Symptoms may be controlled by the frequent consumption of food.
