Tension due to household chores, breaks into fits of laughter as well as cry, laughs when alone. What could this be?

hello dr my mother has developed a kind of complication. she has been in tension over small general house hold worries. suddenly she fell into fit of laughing and crying simultaneously. though she is talking normal to us but when alone she resumes laughing. side by side she is doing all household chores as she used to do and talking to outsiders as she always did. what can this possibly be?

Better to consult a psychiatrist.This can be the starting stage of a psychosis or depression.Enquire if she is hearing any voices in her ear when alone,people laughing or crying when alone usually will be responding to those voices.Take medications as suggested by a psychiatrist.
