'Hyperbolitis' is the name of a condition and is derived from the English word 'hyperbole' which means to exaggerate for effect.

A sufferer of hyperbolitis will often over exaggerate every day occurrences and will, for want of a better phrase, "make a mountain out of a molehill."
It is a well known fact that many attention seekers suffer from hyperbolitis.
Principal Skinner: The things you don't know would fill a whole library and leave room for a few pamphlets.

Superintendent Chalmers: There's no need for hyperbole, Seymour.

Principal Skinner: I'm sorry I suffer from hyperbolitis.
