Stress: I suspect that stress,tension and anxiety are responsible for most, if not all, of these symptoms. Nevertheless I recommend that you be examined by a physician or neurologist before reaching that conclusion. If it is determined that your symptoms are stress related, stress management coaching and therapy would be very helpful for you. Medications may also be recommended by the examining physician
