When your nervous system is turned up to a certain point, that's like electricity happening in the body.

So if it's very high, if your nervous system is very stimulated, and that voltage is turned up due to the stimulus.

Then you will feel more of these internal vibrations, how's it going guys miguel here from cfs recovery.

This channel is dedicated to helping people recover from chronic fatigue syndrome, or any other hypersensitive nervous system disorder in this video, specifically I'm going to be talking about the internal buzzing that you might be experiencing the vibrations, the feeling like there's, an earthquake happening, sometimes and just the kind of trembling that a lot of people with cfs experience.

Now if you're one of those people experiencing that then you're in the right place because I'm going to talk about what I found to be causing it as well as what you can do about it to fix it once and for all now I did not like this symptom at all.

I didn't like any symptoms.

I had over 50 of them at one point.

But this was a symptom that was sticking around 24 7.

It never really seemed to go away.

It felt like I was plugged into an electrical socket, 24, 7.

and it's hard to describe this to a normal person who has never experienced this before.

But if you're watching this video right now, then I know, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

You feel wired.

You feel jittery when you try to relax, you can't really relax because sure you're not moving, but internally, it feels like something is just being electrocuted, almost that kind of feeling right now.

I used to feel this when I was trying to fall asleep.

The moment I woke up when I was walking around doing things.

And it got to the point sometimes where I would actually be trembling.

If I would hold my hand out like this and now it's normal.

But back in the day, it was shaking.

And I was always trembling.

My nervous system was always on edge that's.

What it felt like it felt like at any moment, you could just explode there were other times when I would be standing around with my friends when this is when it wasn't as severe, but we'd be standing around, and then all of a sudden I would feel the floor shake.

And I'd look around and ask them, I was like, do you guys feel that it was definitely an earthquake.

And they just look at me like no, there was no earthquake.


It was just you, and I'd be like, okay, that's weird because I could have sworn.

There was an earthquake.

So I had a lot of these internal tremors and the wired buzzing feeling was very annoying, because I could not sleep.

I think this was one of the big factors that led to a lot of insomnia.

Because at night time, like I mentioned earlier, I could not relax, no matter how comfy my bed was no matter how dark the room was no matter how fluffy the pillows were.

I just could not relax.

And that led to my thoughts as well.

Not only was my body just trembling and wired.

I felt like my brain was wired too.

I couldn't stop my thoughts, my thoughts, it was like a freight train that once the thoughts started going.

It just went and it just snowballed and into all these different things.

The next thing, you know, this thought here here here, and it felt like my brain was wired.

Now I understand what's going on a lot more sometimes you feel more wired than other times.

Sometimes you actually have these windows where you actually feel decent.

But for most people, most of the time they are wired and sometimes it's 24 7.

But the way I describe it to people from what I experienced is your nervous system is run on an electrical impulse.

It is literally run on electricity.

So when we have this buzzing and internal vibration feeling it's kind of like your nervous system being completely turned up into sympathetic mode.

If we think of like a dial, if we think of a dial and we have zero as parasympathetic, which you can't ever get to zero, because that means you're dead.

So it's always gonna be probably around a one right.

So let's say, one to ten on one that's more so parasympathetic that's, when you're in a deep sleep, ten is when you are in a full-blown panic attack.

And your body is just extremely sensitive.

And and this could be when your symptoms are flaring up too.

Now what happens is our nervous system can get stuck at certain levels.

So when you have cfs, typically your body is stuck in a hypersensitive state in a more sympathetic state in sympathetic overdrive and it's stuck at seven or an eight.

What I see is that leveler, the more it's turned up the more stimulation you have within the body it's like someone turning up the voltage on the electricity in your body between your nervous system functions, right? So the higher you turn it up the more wired you're, gonna feel.

And the thing that has a direct effect on the level of voltage on your body is stimulus any kind of stimulus.

It could be physical.

It could be mental.

It could be emotional.

But essentially when your nervous system is turned up to a certain point, that's like electricity happening in the body.

So if it's very high, if your nervous system is very stimulated, and that voltage is turned up due to the stimulus, then you will feel more of these internal vibrations with this symptom of buzzing and vibration it's the same approach as any other symptom in cfs.

You have to just throw it under the same umbrella as everything else, throw it under the umbrella of a hypersensitive nervous system issue.

We can do things that can help the body start to shift into a more sympathetic state, but to have lasting change.

You need to learn to internally turn the knob down or the level down on the voltage of your nervous system.

You could call it voltage.

You could call it stimulus.

But overall you want to be able to turn that down internally in addition to other things you're doing.

So I recommend people do things like cool showers like acupressure mats like sleeping with a mask on at night to block out any light all these things are tools that can help, but they won't necessarily solve the problem long term if you don't learn how to do this internally.

Now once I started dealing with one of the main stimuli that kept my nervous system turned on.

Then I was able to start having less and less of this, wired feeling less and less of the vibrations, the buzzing less of the feeling like I was plugged into an electrical socket, 24 7.

And the way I did that was lowering the main stimulus that was causing a lot of this, which was the emotional and the mental stress, the emotional and the mental stress that I was placing on the nervous system.

A lot of times.

Those things are overlooked because here's the problem you could be resting physically lying in bed, doing absolutely nothing.

And you might be feeling the same if not worse and that's.

What happened to me when I was living with my grandparents for eight months, I was not getting out of bed.

The only time I got in bed was one time a day, and I was to go to the washroom.

And even doing that really hit me hard.

My grandma had to help me get to the washroom.

I had to hold on to her keep in mind at the time I was 22 years old, and she was 72.

She was 50 years older than me.

I should have been the one helping her, but she was the one helping me.

So there was definitely a lot of guilt with that a lot of kind of shame.

And then I was also putting a lot of stress on myself, because you know, I had too much time to sit and feel sorry for myself throughout the day.

And just think, oh, should I do this? Should I do that I'm scared to do this because it's going to trigger symptoms? I had no idea what was going on and that's.

The biggest thing I had zero idea, what direction to go.

What to do? Should I be taking supplements? Do I need to fly out to some other country to find a specialist who deals with this? Luckily, I found a doctor.

Well, I didn't find a doctor.

He found me in the hospital.

I ended up in the hospital.

I was in the intensive care unit for a month in really rough shape.

They transferred me to another wing where I met my doctor, and he broke down exactly what was going on and that's.

What helped me lower the emotional and mental stress? I had about everything that was going on, because I knew the way out he pretty much gave me the road map.

And the road map is something I break down in recovery.

Jump, start the exact steps I take because it is a process right? You have to focus on specific things.

The diagrams he broke down.

I actually put them into a document to simplify everything that way people like yourself can refer to it as a roadmap as something that guides them along the way in recovery.

If you were interested in seeing that I call it the recovery science blueprint, you can click the link down below.

You can check it out and see if it's something you want to have on hand and same on your phone that you can refer to when you're feeling a loss.

But once I started applying the principles and work on making my nervous system, less hypersensitive.

Once I started focusing on that then all of these other problems started to lift right? They didn't lift overnight, but they started to lift.

My progress was ten times faster than it was in the previous eight months.

In fact, it was like a million percent better because the previous eight months I was actually getting worse and worse.

Now I was actually getting better very quickly, but it was still a journey ahead.

It didn't happen overnight.

But in terms of making those symptoms go away, you can't work on them.

Immediately you can do things like cool showers and acupressure mats that can help temporarily.

But in order to make it go away for good along with all of the other symptoms.

You might have, including the fatigue anxiety, heart palpitations pot, symptoms anything else you might be feeling.

You do have to attack this as one problem.

And that problem is the hypersensitive nervous system issue.

If you fix that problem, you fix all the other sub problems under it all the problems that we've thrown under your umbrella like all the symptoms that I talked about earlier.

So make sure you comment down below, because we do subscriber, highlights every single video.

In fact, this video, the highlight is going to go to karen lambert.

She commented miguel.

This is healing in a nutshell.

My eyes are open while watching this.

I've spent years trying to fix each symptom and not succeeding fixing any of them over the last month.

I've been brain retraining, which was so needed, concentrating on my nervous system.

Instead of chasing my tail, trying to fix my symptoms is so much easier.

Thank you.

And she said it, right there.

Instead of focusing on a handful of symptoms individually she focused on one problem, which was the hypersensitive nervous system issue and she's starting to see some great results.

And it is much easier too it's, less complicated.

You have one problem to solve versus 20 problems to solve.

But in solving that one problem, you solve the 20 other problems.
