These last few months I have been experiencing physical symptoms such as lightheadedness, fast heartbeat, loss of appetite/desire to eat, headaches, and fatigue. I have seen several doctors and gotten multiple blood tests done, but so far, everything has turned out to be normal. I find myself feeling anxious and wonder if my physical symptoms are arising from stress/not knowing how to cope with stress at work?
We all know from personal experience that stress and anxiety are a normal part of our human experience. Life is full of daily hassles, perceived or real threats and challenges, and the usual ups and downs. Such experiences impact us physically, psychologically and behaviorally, as well as influencing our ability to engage in satisfying relationships.
