Have you ever had or witnessed a conniption fit?  The origin of this particular phrase is not known.  It is an American term and was first used in about 1833.  One can have a conniption without the fit, or a fit without a conniption, but when you put them both together you have yourself a conniption fit.  Basically it means going into a fit of rage, hysteria, or alarm.  Closely related are a tantrum, a blowup, an outburst or the ever popular hissy fit.
