Like so many of you, my nervous system is out of control. The problem is when I try to match my symptoms with a specific part of the nervous system, things just don't fit. The sympathetic and parasympathetic branches are on opposite ends of a teeter-totter. If you have symptoms that indicate one is high, the other will be low. The two are supposed to work in harmony to keep the body properly balanced. But ... I have some symptoms that suggest sympathetic is too high while at the same time other symptoms suggest an overactive parasympathetic branch. Is it possible for BOTH to be too high? As if the teeter-totter is sitting up on stilts and needs to be put back on the ground? Is there any way to do this?
