Symptoms of Victorian hysteria

I've been doing some searching for "symptoms of hysteria," "Victorian hysteria in women," and the like, and while I've seen multiple mentions of a list containing "75 pages of possible symptoms," I have yet to find any list of significant length that describes these symptoms. All I'm finding is the Wikipedia article and the articles that were copypasted to make the Wikipedia article. Help me out?

I want specifically symptoms as described in the Victorian (pre-Freud or co-current with his work) era, not the modern hysteria that a few rather sketchy self-diagnosis websites describe.
