i was fixing some of the links, so now instead of PMS and PTSD we have premenstrual syndrome and post-traumatic stress disorder, with irritability mentioned in each page. there was a link to "pregency" which i assume is supposed to mean "pregnancy", but irritability isn't mentioned on the pregnancy page, so i removed it. 05:15, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

is there a chance that if youre getting this say from both hunger and pain its worse? 00:12, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

I would think that only the sufferer could answer that. Aren't both pain and hunger relative? PMHauge 01:08, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
heh, in that case the answer is yes. 23:39, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

i'm not sure whether this source is reliable, but this page - looks really, really detailed. 06:42, 7 April 2007 (UTC)


I get this feeling that this list will never stop growing until it encompasses every condition, ailment and situation that could befall mankind. I mean, won't just about anything manage to irritate at least someone? PMHauge 13:21, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

It wouldn't if we could more exactly define irritability. Being irritated shouldn't be the smane thing. — trlkly 09:40, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

probably a candidate for deletion as it seems nothing more that a definition and has no references. Given the current form - a list could include

this article seems to simply be a defintion and like a dictionary Earlypsychosis (talk) 08:54, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

The Biological Definition[edit]

This article ignores the biologist's definition of irritability, which is simply the ability of an organism to respond actively to physical stimuli. If there are no objections, I'll add this section. rowley (talk) 22:50, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

management and treatment[edit]

add these sections — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A03:2880:3010:7FF3:FACE:B00C:0:1 (talk) 06:53, 14 August 2015 (UTC)


Why is there a page for an emotion? Wikipedia isn't supposed to have pages about things that can only be seen by a living being.--Trisha Gaurav (talk) 03:31, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
