Anxiety is stress and stress is not good.
Different body conditions and individuals manage and tolerate stress in different ways. - If you are stressed and you are in poor health. Lets say history of Coronary disease, heart failure, and your sterss is significant. this can cause increase cardiac burden and become an issue. Hopefully at 25 this is not the situation
