Hyperactivity can be described as a physical state in which a person is abnormally and easily excitable or exuberant.
Strong emotional reactions, impulsive behavior, and a short span of attention are also typical for a hyperactive person.
Some individuals may show these characteristics naturally, as personality differs from person to person.
Nonetheless, when hyperactivity starts to become a problem for the person or others, it may be classified as a medical disorder.
The slang term "hyper" is used to describe someone who is in a hyperactive state.
There was a great deal of focus on Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder as a cause of hyperactivity.
Other conditions can cause it as well.
Normal young children can be very lively and have short attention spans.
Normal teenagers can also appear hyperactive; puberty can cause it.
Children who are bored, are suffering from mental conflict, or are having problems at home - which may even include sexual abuse - can be hyperactive.
The disorder has a large range of effects on children.
Some have learning disabilities, while others may be very gifted, or both.
