Consequences of stress

Fatigue, irritability... or even attacks of rheumatism: sometimes stress can carry serious harmful consequences. These consequences are more or less dangerous, depending on what provoked them and the person's ability to resist them anxieties.

Let's analyze some stressful situations and their consequences for health.

Stress is a normal reaction of the body. It allows us to face unforeseen events or adapt to significant changes.

Sometimes, it can be associated with a disease known as “adaptation”. We are subjected to stress when our body can no longer cope with constant tension.

It is very important to understand that stress, by itself, does not create a disease, but is responsible for exacerbating pre-existing diseases, such as asthma, migraines, diabetes mellitus, etc.


Being subjected to excessive stress, our body begins to sound alarm bells. If You have one or more of the following signs, then you need to urgently get rid of stress:

* Fatigue, especially after waking up;

• Violation sleep;

• Alarm;

• Nervousness;

• Rheumatism: pain in the joints, periarthritis, arthritis;

* Heaviness in the muscles, including in the neck; back pain, cramps;

* Sexual dysfunction with decreased libido;

• Memory impairment.


If You are not able to listen to your own body, excessive stress can cause serious health problems, depending on Your individual predisposition and your past.

In women, most often, stress manifests itself in increased anxiety, obsession, and depression.

In men, the consequences are no less serious: ulcers, cardiovascular diseases, sexual problems…

We can highlight some problems that are very often associated with stress:

* Diseases of the digestive tract gastrointestinal disorders: cramps, dry mouth, bloating, diarrhea, gastritis, peptic ulcer, irritable colon syndrome;

* cardiovascular diseases: palpitations, chest pain, chest discomfort, hypertension, angina or myocardial infarction;
