Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems.

Will Medrol (methylprednisolone) dosepack increase the stress hormone level?

Will Medrol (methylprednisolone) dosepack increase the stress hormone level?

No: In fact, it will decrease stress hormone levels. Steroids mimic your body's stress hormones, so your body stops producing its own. This is why it's important to taper off of steroids slowly so that your body has a chance to start producing stress hormones again - otherwise your body would go into shock. ...Read more

I have severe acne for the past 4 month due to stress and hormone unbalance. I'm prescribed with vitamin H but it doesn't help. What else can I take?

I have severe acne for the past 4 month due to stress and hormone unbalance. I'm prescribed with vitamin H but it doesn't help. What else can I take?

Find other physician: "Vitamin H" (biotin) is an inappropriate choice for acne treatment. Acne is not caused by stress, and your hormonal milieu might be managed by going on the oral contraceptive pill, getting more exercise, and/or some other intervention. Bad acne requires topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid plus prescription-strength meds (antibiotic, spironolactone and/or isotretinoin). Get seen soon. ...Read more

Can stress cause fainting?

Sure can: This is the classic picture of "swooning" from screen and stage where the character, upon receiving some startling or otherwise dramatic news, faints, with dramatic music in the background, of course. In real life, this is caused by a drop in blood pressure due to a vasovagal response brought on by a strong emotional reaction. Very common and generally harmless (unless you hit your head!). ...Read more
