  1. This is fascinating. I have every one of these symptoms except the acid reflux/ulcers but had no idea they were related…stressed me out lol 😏

  2. I have two of these symptoms- hair loss and
    Tinnitus- have had a very stressful two years. The article was very helpful. Kick started my walking routine and positive
    outlook. Thanks.

  3. I just went through a year and a half of stressful days and nights. I felt helpless and I even felt close to
    Palpitations one night and I pressed my life alert and spent one night in the hospital, where the doctors
    did not find anything wrong. I spoke to my family doctor about my problem and he wrote in my chart
    that I was paranoid.
    The term of my lease finally was over and I moved with my daughter and her family and my nightmare
    is finally over.

  4. One thing I do during extreme stress is sleep. Go to my happy place and stay there until my body functions wake me up. Then I go back. One time I slept for 3 days on and off. No TV. No noise. No outside stressor. It passes and I feel more relaxed.

  5. I think stress is a much larger problem than you discribe. I’ve had 11 stents, 5 strokes, 2 heart attacks, and died once. I attribute all that to stress as I endured many hours, days, weeks and years working without having the choice to avoid the stress I was under.

    Better choices would have helped me, I realize that. As far as suggestions for you, I suggest you take this fight to insurance companies first. Unfortunately I don’t see a simple solution to the ultimate culprit, capitalism. Good luck with yours. I’ll try to influence mine.
