A type of hysteria brought on by spending too much time indoors.
Directly decended from long haul journeys where you are stuck in cramped conditions for too damn long.

Being stuck indoors for a prolonged period of time during the winter months and suffering from depression caused from a vitamin deficiency caused by a lack of sunlight and sick of being inside with the same people for months on end.
I have cabin fever so bad from being stuck inside the house with my stupid brothers and sisters all winter long!

According the movie, "The Shining",
Stuart Ullman calls cabin fever "a kind of claustrophobic reaction which can occur when people are shut in together over long periods of time."
But at some point during the winter, he must have suffered some kind of a complete mental breakdown. He ran amuck, and uh, killed his family with an axe. Stacked 'em neatly in one of the rooms of the West Wing, and uh, then he, uh, he put, uh, both barrels of a shotgun in his mouth. Police, uh, they thought that was what the old-timers used to call cabin fever.

The feeling you get when you're ready to go out on the town a bit too early and you're sitting around at home waiting for your friends to come out to meet you, or waiting for the call to say, "It's partytime!"
Out of the shower, dressed, jacket on.
Itching to go! Nobody else is ready. Switch on the TV but watch without interest. Get up. Sit down. Look at your watch, check for SMS messages.. the Cabin Fever is setting in.
