In this lesson, we will delve into various potential contributors to nervous system hyper-excitability. Hyper-excitability can manifest in different forms, such as epilepsy, migraines, neuropathic pain, tics, twitches, irritability, nervousness, etc.
We will explore the neurobiological basis of these conditions and understand how hyper-excitability of the nervous system contributes to their development. Prevention, assessment, and treatment will be discussed.
You will gain knowledge about the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options available. Additionally, we will discuss the impact of hyper-excitability on an individual's overall well-being and explore strategies to manage and cope with these conditions effectively.
