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.

If i'm too weak to do the exercise nuclear stress test next week will they do the injection kind? I'm worried I won't be able to. Havent been eating.
Discuss with Cardio: If you are feeling more weak than prior to having the stress test scheduled, I would recommend you have a doctor examine you right away. It could be a sign of worsening health (possibly your heart). If this has been an ongoing concern, however, please consider discussing your limitations with the Cardiologist. They can inject you with "dipyridamole" which puts similar stress on your heart. ...Read more

Managing stress: Stress can certainly affect blood pressure. It's hard to do things that overnight will change things very significantly, since the effects of stress tend to occur and build up over time.

Im really scared. My period lasted two days. What can i do? We used a condom and all the tests came out negative. Can the change be due to stress?
Absolutely!: It sounds like you got a 2 day period after you had sex using a condom. The fact that your period only lasted 2 days is not uncommon particularly at your age. I doubt you are pregnant. However, the stress of unwanted pregnancy sounds to be significant & can affect periods. Please recognize you feel this stress even though you are using contraception. I would consider more reliable methods:pill,etc ...Read more
