Why does alcohol withdrawal cause seizures?

When you excessively drink, your dopamine levels are at a consistent high in your brain. However, when you take it away, the dopamine levels drop dramatically which is a shock to your system. It is a shock so big you can have seizures. So, if you are thinking of stopping drinking go to a doctor and let them know because it can be super dangerous. I think you’d rather be safe than sorry!

I’m not positive on why Alcohol withdrawal causes seizures but I know it happens. So if you know someone or if you’re going to stop drinking, make sure you get into a detox so you can withdrawal safely with the help of medication. Good luck.
