Emotional symptoms: Highly charged emotional states, such as anger or anxiety, are associated with discharge within the autonomic nervous system, which controls the glandular release of hormones and neuronal release of neurotransmitters. These in turn may control the activity of smooth muscle and skeletal muscle, leading to leg tremors, increased hr and bp, facial flushing, GI discomfort, et al.
