Stress symptoms

Stress symptoms: Effects on your body, feelings and behavior
Stress symptoms often mimic symptoms of other problems. You may think illness is to blame for that nagging headache, your frequent forgetfulness or your decreased productivity at work. But the common denominator may be stress. Indeed, stress symptoms can affect your body, your thoughts and feelings, and your behavior. Stress may be affecting your health, and you may not even realize it. Recognize common stress symptoms — then take steps to manage them.
