hyperexcitability

bronchial hyperresponsiveness

A term referring to exaggerated bronchial constriction of unknown pathogenesis, which most commonly occurs in asthmatics in response to nonspecific provocation (inhalation of various bronchoconstrictors), but also to physical challenges—e.g., exercise, dry or cold air, hypertonic or hypotonic aerosols.

hyperexcitability

excessive mental and physical activity.
