Stress causes short AND long term harm.
Stress is the biological response to intrinsic or extrinsic stimulus. This biological stress response involves interconnections among the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. The two most well known stress-related biological mechanisms are:-
- sympathetic arousal
- activation of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenocortical (HPA) axis.
The biological stress response involves interconnections among the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems.
Distress (negative stress) can lead to physical symptoms including headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, and problems sleeping. Research suggests that stress also can bring on or worsen certain symptoms or diseases.
Stress has been linked to illnesses that include cancer, lung disease, fatal accidents, suicide, and cirrhosis of the liver.
