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
I'm seeing faces and mild hallucinations every where. Worse when I worry more about it. Under high stress and anxiety. Can stress cause this?
More than stress?:
True visual hallucinations usually comes about when there is more than just stress or anxiety. It more often comes about when the brain is impacted by something such as drugs, alcohol and some times by severe depression. Sometimes during high anxiety the mind may play some tricks and distort some reality.
In any case you should speak with a doctor if you are having any type of halluciination ...Read more
Maybe it can: It has not been scientifically proven that stress causes cancer. Some viruses cause cancers, so it is possible that stress alters the way the body fights off or deals with viruses, and could make one more susceptible to developing cancers.

Possibly.: Exercise will not usually cause heartburn unless is it stressful. So, choose exercise you enjoy.

Can I b induce. ..im 33 wks prego...with hyperemesis gravidarum....im. Stressing out with this condition...
Unlikely: Few physicians would induce a patient at 33 weeks for hyperemesis gravidarum. While the nausea and vomiting can certainly be a debilitating problem there are means of treatment - the ultimate solution may be delivery, 39 weeks should be the goal for the end of your pregnancy. 37 weeks would likely be the minimal gestational age to consider elective delivery depending on the status of the baby. ...Read more

Could I have an anxiety disorder and unnoticed stress that manifests itself with voices and hallucinations rather than the diagnoses of bipolar?
Need competent eval: One way that it would be possible to have an anxiety disorder with psychosis would be for your anxiety disorder to be rooted in temporal lobe epilepsy. Given the fact that you have auditory and visual hallucinations, this would be a possibility. One other possibility would be a dissociative disorder that has not been diagnosed. It is of course possible to have both of the above. Dissociative disorders particularly commonly present with bipolar symptoms that remit when the underlying trauma has been dealt with appropriately. Best wishes. Please see a very competent psychiatrist. ...Read more

Not much: The concept of "stress-induced coma" has been studied in locusts -- but despite some bloggers commenting about themselves, I don't know of any human studies. Locusts can enter comas in response to stress. Neural and muscular systems shut down until the stress is removed. Could be an adaptive strategy to survive extreme environmental conditions. Not sure how that applies to these bloggers. :-). ...Read more
