Causes Excessive Laughter And Repeating Words When Talking To Others?
Night, I erda. I want to ask this about a friend of mine at a state university so like this, my friend has a habit when talking to someone is never serious, he always laughs excessively even though sometimes there is nothing funny in conversation, besides that he also likes to repeat other people’s words . For example, like “let’s eat” he must follow the previous person talking like that. So that friends are very uncomfortable with him, if you talk, sometimes you like to not connect. Is it a disease or disorder? Especially his uncontrollable laughter. I call it laughing talking. Please clarify. Thank you 😊
The condition that your friend does can be a trait or habit of that person, but besides that it can also be caused by other conditions, where laughter or the habit of repeating other people's words can be a way to get attention from people around or around friends. If you really feel laughing so much that your friends or people around you feel uncomfortable, you can remind it or you can tell the person your friend trusts to tell the person directly. Or an approach can also be made so that your friend tells you that there is no motive behind his action.
There is no laughing disease unless there is the influence of certain substances or alcohol so that people can do something beyond their control or it can be because of a disturbance in the ability to control emotions and also actions such as not being able to control crying, unable to control laughter where this condition can happen to them with a history of trauma or head injury or neurological disorders such as due to stroke, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and others, this condition is called the pseudobulbar effect.
If your friend's condition is this and it continues, it is necessary to carry out further examinations and deeper interviews not only with the person concerned but also with family or closest people regarding this behavior so that it can be compared when with family at home with when with friends.
