In brief: Intermittent expolos
Intermittent explosive disorder is a condition where a person has sudden outbursts.
It can exist by itself or be a symptom of panic disorder, anxiety, adhd, dementia, seizures, neurologic disorders, as well as bipolar and psychotic disorders. Evaluation and appropriate treatment can greatly help but the cause needs to be determined.
