  • Constipation refers to infrequent bowel movements with hard, dry stools. Poor diet and dehydration are usually to blame, though certain diseases or other medical issues are possible causes.
  • Diarrhea is a condition that's characterized by the appearance of loose, watery stools or a frequent need to have a bowel movement. It usually lasts a few days and often disappears without any treatment.
  • Temper tantrums are emotional outbursts of anger and frustration. Tantrums typically begin at about 12-18 months and reach their peak during the "terrible twos."
  • Echolalia is a condition associated with autism. People with echolalia repeat noises and phrases that they hear.
  • Aimless movements can be a symptom of a primary or secondary movement disorder, side effect of a medication, psychiatric disturbance or dementia. Aimless or purposeless movement is therefore a significant symptom requiring evaluation by a physician to determine the origin of the problem.
