I've never heard of a "hypersensitive nervous system" and it sounds rather
ad hoc to me. On the other hand, the cold hands and feet, at least,
suggest Reynaud's disease. As my ignorance of newsgroups is total, perhaps
someone could pass this along to MarcH's newsgroup if they think this
comnent has merit.
