Stress Signs and Stress Symptoms

Excess stress can manifest itself in a variety of emotional, behavioral, and even physical symptoms, and the symptoms of stress vary enormously among different individuals. Common somatic (physical) symptoms often reported by those experiencing excess stress include:

  • emotional and behavioral symptoms (e.g., include nervousness, anxiety, changes in eating habits including overeating, loss of enthusiasm or energy, and mood changes)
  • fatigue
  • insomnia
  • muscle tension
  • tension headaches
  • gastrointestinal disturbances
There is significant evidence that stress can cause or worsen various diseases or conditions. The following is just a short list:

There also is scientific evidence showing that people experiencing psychological stress are more prone to develop colds and other infections than their less-stressed peers.
