Overactive nerves in the body can be caused by many things, and in my own experience, I would say that my overactive nerves were caused by an overactive mind and a hyper-alert state of being.

This mental state of being caused tension in my body too, and the combination of overactive mind and tense body caused my tissues to fill with stress chemicals and scar tissue and be constantly inflamed. This constant state of inflammation and extreme overwork of my entire nervous system and exhaustion of my adrenals combined to create overactive nerves.
While I was growing up many adults around me were violent and angry much of the time. This put me on constant alert. Unkowingly, I adopted their ways of being; bitter, angry, blaming, resentful, mean, fearful and anxious.
These types of mental states put an extreme toll on the body. Every time I felt angry or resentful or anxious my adrenals were squirting stress chemicals into my bloodstream. My body couldn’t clear all these chemicals out so it was constantly storing them in my tissues, including my nerves and the coverings of my nerves.
Eventually, my body reached a state of constant inflammation that it couldn’t recover from without help, and my brain reached a state of constant overload. All it knew was thinking, thinking, thinking. I would try to think my way out of everything.
Phew. Eventually, I reached a point where I realized I couldn’t go on for one more second the way I had been going. I was falling apart mentally, emotionally, and physically. I had fibromyalgia, constant pain, and a miserable outlook.
That’s when I started looking for ways to calm my nerves and my mind.
I found restorative supplements, stretching, self trigger point massage, what I call emotional sculpting, and guaifenesin.
The stretching, trigger point massaage, and guaifenesin were to calm and heal my body and restore blood supply and healthy tissue to my nerves. The emotional sculpting was to calm my brain and my nervous system.
Things are different for me these days. I’m much happier. My nerves are much calmer. It took me 5 to 6 years to totally figure it out, and I still learn every day, but I was doing it without a map.
