Stress Q & A

What is stress?

Stress is your body’s response to change or a perceived threat. Your body releases hormones that trigger a fight-or-flight response. Your body should relax and return to normal after the initial reaction, but when you’re under constant stress or aren’t able to find a way to cope with the stressors in your life, the constant pressure can have an adverse effect on your mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Your experience with stress is unique, and the situations that cause you stress may be different than those that your friends or colleagues seem to deal with effortlessly. Dr. Mindia can help you deal with all types of stress, whether you’re worried about money, being laid off, occupational stressors such as the pressure to work at your optimum level at all times, or relationship issues.

What are the signs that I’m having trouble dealing with stress?

Unmanaged stress causes a wide range of negative symptoms that affect your body, mood, and behavior. Some of the common negative signs of stress include:

  • Feeling anxious, irritable, or depressed
  • Problems sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle tension or headaches
  • Stomach problems
  • Social withdrawal
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Using alcohol or drugs to cope

Stress can lead to more severe issues, including anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. Helping you learn to manage and cope with your stress in a healthy way is a top priority for Dr. Mindia. For an expert consultation, call or schedule an appointment today.
