Stress manifests itself in different ways, but often we don’t attach importance to its symptoms. If your body is trying to tell you it's time to relax and rest you shouldn’t ignore it, otherwise, it may lead to several problems with health, including serious diseases.
1. Your muscles hurt
Do you feel pain in your neck or shoulders? It's not always caused by intense training or a bad pillow. Under stress and fatigue, our muscles tighten and you may feel a sensation similar to muscle stretching. Stress in men is most often manifested by lower back pain, and in women - in the upper back.
2. You have a headache
A dull aching pain that seems to be girdling the head also signals exhaustion. Of course, pills will relieve the pain, but they won't solve the problem. Try to do some stress relief exercises such as meditation or yoga.
3. You are thirsty all the time
When we are nervous, the adrenal glands begin to produce more stress hormone, which causes adrenaline fatigue to occur. This condition affects the production of other hormones, as well as the body's water balance. So if you get thirsty often, perhaps the fault is stress.
4. You sweat a lot
Anxiety and stress also often cause excessive sweating. To avoid sweating during an important gig, try breathing deeply or listen to placating music before it
5. Your hair is falling out
Stress and exhaustion can cause not only hair loss but also such diseases as trichotillomania - tearing out one's own hair and focal baldness - an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system begins to destroy hair follicles. So with abundant hair loss, it is better to consult a doctor.
6. You have digestive problems
Symptoms of stress are stomach cramps and constant urging for the toilet. In addition, when you’re under stress, the frequency of contractions of the stomach changes and digestion is suspended.
7. Your jaws hurt
When we experience stress, we often unconsciously clench our teeth or grind them. This happens even during sleep and leads not only to pain in the jaws but also tooth pain. Try different techniques to relieve stress, and if this does not help, dentists advise to wear special mouthguards at night.
8. Your weight has changed dramatically
Small changes in weight are natural, but if you notice a sharp decrease or increase in weight, it can be caused by stress. Also, it is signaled by sharp drops in appetite. Try to eat properly, play sports and get enough sleep. This will help you to return to your normal weight.
9. Your memory has deteriorated
Pay attention to how often you forget your keys or can’t find things at home. According to research data, chronic stress reduces spatial memory and shortens your temper.
10. You often suffer from flu
Stress and runny nose are interrelated. According to research, during stress, we are more susceptible to colds, psychological stress and susceptible to the common cold. But even when the stressful period in life is over, we can still easily get sick. During stress, hormones cortisol and adrenaline are released, which don’t make us feel pain, but as soon as we relax, the body becomes more vulnerable.
