How Stress Can Affect Us

In clinic, I see how stress can manifest in so many physical and mental ways. Of course, we should not assume its just stress. If you have seen your physician and have been told you are healthy, check in with yourself. 

Our body produces cortisol, when we are acutely and chronically stressed. 

Decreased Immune System - Are you getting sick often? 

Gastrointestinal Issues - Are you having nausea, bloating, constipation, diarrhea? 

Poor Sleep Quality and Insomnia - Not feeling rested? Waking up at 2 am, 3 am, 4 am?

Body Aches and Pain - Easily injured? Random muscle and joint pains? 

Overall Inflammation 

Anxiety and Depression - Normal tasks causing anxiety? 

Changes in Appetite and Weight

Rashes or Skin Changes 

Hair Changes

High Blood pressure, chest pressure, irregular heart rate

High cholesterol and Diabetes

There could be more than one cause of any of the above medical concerns, and stress can be an exacerbating factor. 

If stress is one of the culprits, find ways to manage it. I know this is easier said than done, but there are ways to take the edge off.
