MAY BE EMOTIONAL AND / OR PHYSICAL
Whether for over-responsibility, worry or loss situations, stress enhances the action of the endocrine system and generates physical changes in the body, leading to emotional out-of-control and even creating illness. An alternative to figuring out the time to slow down is to observe the signs and symptoms of stress in the body. What is stress and why do we feel it? The organism reacts to moments of tension or threat with the activation of alertness, which promotes several biochemical reactions in order to save the person from possible danger. Among them are the almost immediate production and release of neurosubstances created by the adrenal gland, the so-called catecholamines, such as adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol. The first two dilate the blood vessels of vital organs of the body in order to preserve them before the risk situation, and diminish the circulation of the less important places. The second one increases glycemia and turns fat into available energy. The problem is that in the long run the release of hormones increases the risk of heart disease and triglycerides, reduces the production of insulin and still affects the immune system, leaving the body fragile microorganisms evil. Consequences:
In the long run, stress can cause psychiatric illnesses such as panic disorder and anxiety disorder, adrenal gland insufficiency, thyroid problems, dysregulation of the menstrual cycle and even diabetes. “There is still no consensus as to why a person develops from stress to disease, but the hormonal changes he brings cause significant organic and mental repercussions.” Symptoms of Stress: The symptoms of stress in the body vary according to the body and personality of each person. Non-specific, there may be: * Excessive and constant voltage
* Fatigue that arises even after simple activities
* Difficulty sleeping
* Shortness of breath
Dizziness and vertigo
* Hair loss (Alopecia areata) among others … Despite this, the presence of symptoms alone does not characterize stress. Each sign needs to be analyzed in conjunction with other concomitant manifestations, in addition to the entire context of the person, history of symptoms and circumstances. Stress can still cause or aggravate skin diseases, in a phenomenon called psychodermatosis, such as allergic contact dermatitis, dandruff, psoriasis, vitiligo and excessive sweating.
The worsening of herpes pictures also arises as a result of decreased immunity. Psychodermatoses refer to any skin disease in which psychological factors play a significant role. They can both trigger diseases and only aggravate them. There are also cases of personality disorders that result in self inflicted skin diseases. Anxiety and stress have been increasing considerably in the population, “he warns.
According to her, the emotional factors that most commonly affect the skin are anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia and hypochondria. Here are some examples: Psychodermatoses that are triggered by the emotional state. It is when emotional changes are the direct cause of the onset of the disease. Among the most common are hyperhidrosis (excessive and constant sweating), urticaria (red and swollen skin on the skin), vitiligo (white patches on the skin, especially on the genitals, elbows, knees, face, feet and hands), pruritus (also known as itching, it is an itchy skin irritation) and alopecia areata (hair loss in plaques, usually in rounded areas).
