Physical Illnesses Related to Stress

Stress related physical illnesses are commonly referred to as psycho-physiological disorders or psychosomatic illnesses. Even though the general perception is that stress causes psychological problems, the reality is that psycho-physiological disorders and illnesses are nearly as common. It is just that most people fail to correlate stress with physical symptoms and problems.

Stress produces a response from the central nervous system that initiates certain actions within the body. We do not have conscious control over these actions. Continuous stress results in constant alertness, something that can adversely affect certain organs.

For example, the stress response can cause the heart to beat faster, something that the blood vessels may not be able to tolerate if the pressure is maintained at high levels for a long time.

Prolonged stress causes high blood pressure and a simultaneous constriction of blood vessels leads to cardiovascular problems like heart attack, stroke and even heart failure.
