Get checked out: Stress can manifest in many ways--emotional lability, lack of energy or drive, decreased libido/performance, hives & other skin manifestations, chest pain, air hunger, perioral numbess/tingling, tingling in fingers/toes, overindulgence in food & substances, GI spasms with resulting diarrhea/constipation/nausea & abdominal discomfort, headaches & more significant neurologic problems, etc. Get eval.
