Causes of Exploding Head Syndrome: Brain Stem Seizures and High Stress

The exact causes of Exploding Head Syndrome are still not fully understood. However, researchers have identified a few potential factors that may contribute to the development of this condition. One possibility is that the hallucinations may be a result of minor seizures originating in the brain stem, the region responsible for regulating sleep and wake cycles. Another potential factor is high levels of stress and anxiety, which can disrupt normal sleep patterns and increase the likelihood of experiencing Exploding Head Syndrome episodes. Additionally, certain medications, sleep disorders, or underlying medical conditions, such as migraines or sleep apnea, may also be associated with this phenomenon.
