Hyperactivity is an abnormal state of increased anxiety or excitability which interferes with normal functioning. It may be recognized by an inability to focus and impulsive behavior. It can sometimes be caused by an overactive thyroid or other overactive hormone distribution as well as emotional disturbances. See also ADD/ADHD
Gentle massage can help to reduce hyperactivity. Stimulating strokes should be avoided as they can increase hyperactivity. The cause of the hyperactivity needs to be determined by a physician.
