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. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

Is an X-ray the only way to know if bone contusions caused stress fractures? Or are there symptoms that you can go by? Can't get dr. To check for it.
Best way: X-rays are usually the best way to decide whether you have a fracture or not, but they are not the only way. Usually a stress fracture does not come from a specific injury, but is the the result of repeated minor stresses or injuries . A fracture is usually tender in a very localized area.
