    Meaning of excited

    I just looked up the word 'frenzy' in a dictionary and gives the following definition "uncontrolled and excited behaviour or emotion, which is sometimes violent".

    What is the meaning of "excited" in this context? I've looked up 'excited' in same dictionary and it can mean feeling or showing happiness or enthusiasm, or nervous or upset and unable to relax. I'm still confused about the word in the above context though.

    Can anyone help me to understand, please?

    Thank you.

    Re: Meaning of excited

    If someone is in a frenzy, they will normally be nervous and unable to relax- it's not often associated with happiness.
