  • Stress weakens your immune system so anything could be a sign.

  • lots! Strees headaches, physically ill to the tummy, weight loss , hair loss, mood swings. LOTS> and a lot can be the same symptpms you will get for depression.
    i would see a doc, tell them how stressed you are and you think it might be making you physically sick. Chances are they will be able to help, weather it is putting you on a mild sedative for when you get over stressed (but be creful because benzo's can be very addictive if used for a long time) to cognitive therapy. Or both together.

  • My hair falls out. I break out in hives all the time. I throw up and have diarrhea. Thank goodness I haven't had that kind of stress over a long period of time for at least 10 years.

  • headache, dizzyness, stomach problems, heart palputations, and a rapid heart rate, constantly tired, no energy.

  • oh, and the back and neck pain, due to tensing up my muscles during panic attacks and anxiety. I literally throw my back out, and have to get adjustments. The list goes on. It's not fun by any means.
