Stress Q&A

What is stress?

Though stress is usually considered something to avoid, it can also serve an essential role. For example, when you experience stress, your brain releases hormones that provide energy to your body, which can cause you to take action to relieve it. 


However, stress has limits. Constant, overwhelming stress can keep your stress hormones at abnormally high levels. Your primary stress hormone, cortisol, can damage your mental and physical health when it remains elevated for too long.


If you experience a great deal of stress in your life, you need stress management to give you the relief you need and deserve.

What causes stress?

Many factors play a role in stress levels. Stress can develop from:


  • Chronic pain
  • Work deadlines
  • Emotional struggles in relationships
  • Major life changes (moving, getting a new job)
  • Money concerns
  • Fertility issues


Triggers that can promote stress include more than the list above. Jeanine can help determine the root cause of your stress when you meet with her.

What symptoms occur with stress?

Common symptoms that go along with stress include feeling nervous, agitated, anxious, and overwhelmed. You can experience other symptoms as well, such as:


  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Panic attacks
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings
  • Headaches
  • Impatience
  • Muscle tension
  • Lack of interest in work
  • Difficulty making decisions


Stress management can relax you and keep you calm. It can help you overcome your symptoms and treat or prevent issues like pain and infertility.
