i recently wired a ceiling fan into an older home, the number of wires in the new junction box are giving me fits when i try to stuff them back where they belong...should i be worried about cramming them too tightly?

The NEC states the number of wires that are allowed inside various size junction boxes and it sounds like you are probably over the limit. It is things like this that the insurance companies look for to get out of paying homeowners in case of an electrical fire.
