In this fast-paced era, people are facing a variety of pressures whether they are working, studying, emotionally or living. Tiredness, depression, irritability, increased negative energy, or even poor sleep. Has this happened to you?
In fact, these problems may be closely related to stress.
Income levels, working conditions, living conditions, interpersonal relationships, environment, health status … all aspects of life can be a source of stress. Excessive stress can affect your physical and mental health. If you have these symptoms, pay attention.
If you have some itchy red bumps on your body, stress (not allergies) may be the culprit. Excessive stress (extremely high pressure or prolonged high pressure) can make your immune system unstable, and the body begins to release chemical histamine to fight disease.
If the stress does not go away, there may be an allergic reaction and measles will increase. When the immune system weakens due to stress, the skin is also irritated by things that were not previously sensitive, such as soap, alternating heat and cold, lotions or washing powder.
Weight starts to fluctuate
Shanna Levine, MD, from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, said: “Stress triggers the release of cortisol hormones, which impairs the body’s ability to handle blood sugar and alters the way fat, protein and carbohydrates are metabolized, leading to weight Increase or decrease. “At the same time, people also suffer from overeating or loss of appetite due to stress.
If you have never had a headache, but suddenly your brain starts to throb continuously, it may be because the pressure is too high, the chemicals released cause changes in the nerves and blood vessels of the brain, which can cause headaches. If you are prone to migraines, stress can make the situation worse. At the same time, muscle tension is also common under excessive stress, which can also cause headaches.
Stress can disrupt the function of the gastrointestinal tract in a number of ways. It causes the body to produce more digestive acids, which causes heartburn. Physician Deborah Rhodes said: “When stress is high, the digestion and emptying of food in the stomach slows down, causing flatulence and possibly even increasing the number of colon contractions, leading to spasms and diarrhea.”
I’ve been having a cold
Stress can suppress the immune system, make you more susceptible to illness, and make it harder to eliminate the virus. It is easy to get sick under stress because the immune system cannot contain the virus. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh tested it on volunteers infected with a cold virus. Stressed subjects were twice as likely to get sick as less stressed subjects.
Acne and acne are just teen-specific nightmares? If one day you suddenly have a lot of acne on your face, it may be caused by stress.
Because the body secretes more hormones, such as cortisol, this causes the skin glands to produce more oil. Acne occurs when excess oil is trapped in the hair follicles, along with dirt and dead skin cells.
Hair loss is normal because over time, old hair follicles will be replaced by new ones. But stress can disrupt this cycle. The stress puts a large number of hair follicles into a so-called quiescent period, and these hair follicles fall off within a few months. At the same time, stress can also cause the body’s immune system to attack your hair follicles, which can lead to hair loss.
There are many ways to reduce stress. Listening to music, travelling, sports, talking to friends, watching a favorite movie, or eating, buying, buying and buying can all be well released. Learn to vent and talk to prevent negative emotions from accumulating in your heart. This is also an important daily stress relief method.
