Have you ever wondered how stress ends up affecting your body?

Stress has been known to have various effects on our bodies, yet a lot of people only look at the mental health side of things when it actually affects our whole body. This is not to say that the mental health issues people develop due to sleep are not important, but rather that they are just some of the issues people can end up getting due to dealing with stress for an extended period of time.

The truth is that stress can affect people in a lot of different ways; sometimes it is through other mental health issues or through various other body responses. Yet, how can we know when we have other issues or when stress is impacting us in a more negative way than we could have imagined before?

In order to help you get informed on this topic and to help you learn to recognize symptoms of stress before they lead to more complications, we have gathered some of the most common body stress responses here.

  1. Stress has been so prevalent in my life, that I suffer from Vertigo, diabetes 2, and hypertension. It has become so deep in my day to day that it holds me back with enjoying going out, getting basic chores done in the house, accepting invitations, even shopping for anything, etc.

  2. What I find stressful is being 72, on limited income, still working prn and paying $50 to Nurse.com for free cme’s, required by my hospital and my license and certification, only to find out less than a week later I could have saved $15 through a special offer!!! You’ve really pissed me off!

  3. Not my problem, I’m 70, the old male lion living in the zoo laying in the shade.
    Removal of prostate and nerve cut. However, everything else you’ve mentioned, my significant other has experienced.

  4. I can’t sleep I’m totally stressed everyday especially at night it’s impossible to relax my hypotension is off the wall I’m constantly worrying about bills to pay

  5. I AM A TEACHER! NEED I SAY MORE?! When I leave work, I have difficulty going to the gym for strengthening. I go home, shower, and fall into bed. Thank GOD my husband and I have no children of our own. Stress has ballooned my weight up to 300 lbs (working to get it off)! Most of my colleagues, myself included, are on antidepressants!

  6. When I’m under severe stress my eyelashes fall out. Its been happening since I was 17 years old. I could never get a doctor to agree the two were related but after 5 decades of it happening I can say it most definitely is the cause.
