Chronic stress is associated with mental conditions like depression and anxiety disorders as well as physical problems. If you have tried stress relief activities and still have problems with stress, get professional help right away. See your healthcare provider if you have:
• Difficulty sleeping
• Changes in appetite
• Panic attacks
• Muscle tenseness and soreness
• Frequent headaches
• Gastrointestinal problems
• Prolonged feelings of sadness or worthlessness
Your healthcare provider may sign you up for stress management classes, therapy or prescribe drugs for your symptoms.
