Can stress plus broken nerves/nf lead to fatty lumps that can sprout anywhere on the body.I know that nerve damage and nf can but can stress be factor?
Probably not much: Neurofibromatosis type 1 is a condition where you can develop many skin bumps - neurofibromas - over time. Stress is less a factor than hormones - puberty and, for women, childbearing are when more neurofibromas pop up. Time is another major factor - you just get more as you get older. The nerves are not broken. Here's a good discussion site: http://www.Inspire.Com/groups/neurofibromatosis-network. ...Read more
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
