Kleptomania Symptoms

Kleptomania symptoms include:

Recurrent failure to resist impulses to steal objects that are not needed for personal use or for their monetary value.

Increasing sense of tension immediately before committing the theft.

Pleasure, gratification, or relief at the time of committing the theft.

The stealing is not committed to express anger or vengeance and is not in response to a delusion or a hallucination.
