There are people that do have this problem, nervous laughter. These people should learn not to do this, its odd when doing certain jobs. Like this evening, I took Tony to his regular doctor for refills and referrals, the referrals are a yearly thing but the check up is every six months. Well, its the new nurse. She has nervous laughter. Not good when taking down a patients problems. Oh and another place it would not work, no way no how, a funeral home. Just saying...... How`s life for you?

Kay and I both have this and bad. Today she almost killed us. Both sides of the car another car was breaking. We both were laughing but I was crying too. I made kay bring me home. I am returning the car tomorrow. She needs to pay for driving classes. She also needs to read the book.

@andriaperry my brother was being sentenced in court and he busts out laughing. The judge was upset but the lawyer explained what the problem was. he would laugh alot but you could see he was not happy. When I cried he could not manage.

How would one go about getting rid of nervous laughter? I have it. It's annoying when it happens, but there's nothing I can do to stop it when it happens. Thankfully, it hasn't happened in quite a while.

I would think, maybe, calm yourself and realize you don`t always have to answer.

@andriaperry It's the situation I find myself in that causes it, not necessarily talking. The very first time it happened was in grade school. I needed to talk about a board game, how to play it. I chose Monopoly, but felt ridiculous talking about it and couldn't get a word out as I started laughing and couldn't stop. I had to go out in the hall and calm down. As soon as I did, I entered the classroom, and again, I couldn't talk about it. I don't think I ever did. I couldn't stop the nervous laughter.

My mom and I both kind of do that....but it is not extreme. I don't have to worry since I am a stay at home mom...but I get how it can become a problem in some jobs.

I think I am the opposite and do not laugh when I should. I understand, though. There is also a thing similar, when people are suffereing from neurological disorders called emotional lability. They will laugh or cry at the drop of a hat, and not at appropriate times.

It is a disorder that some people have, you are right, not a good place to work if you have it.

I have just learned this from you. I have no idea in fact what's nervous laughter. I find out later that is unhealthy or fake laughter. It's not a genuine one.

I always laughed or smiled when nervous and it made my teachers really mad. I didn't mean it I really couldn't help it. I don't think I do it anymore but who knows. I know my son does it when embarrassed or nervous.
