In brief: Yes

Stress causes many reactions in the body.
Some people get headaches or back pain, others have stomach problems. It sounds like your stress may be causing you to feel bad. The best treatment is to decrease the stress in your life- talk to a friend or a counselor, rearrange life priorities, get help with a problem, reevaluate romantic relationships. If problems continue, see your doctor.
