If someone exaggerates a problem or makes a small problem seem far greater than it really is, then they are making a storm in a teacup.

It can be used to refer to someone who is trying to get attention drawn to themselves or to a situation. They are trying to get other people on their side. After a time, people may belittle the person's efforts and say it's all just a storm in a teacup...!

F you could have a storm in your teacup, it would be a tiny storm! This phrase means a big deal being made over nothing.
major commotion over a trivial matter, major fuss over an unimportant issue
