In brief: Counseling, group Rx
Doctors, like psychiatrists, can provide counseling on issues like this.
They might also help with medication to ease the physical pain. Self-help groups, and supervised group therapy might also help.

In brief: Stay active
Exercise is a great way to relieve stress.
Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders.
