These questions can be used as a guideline in beginning to consider whether stress might be the underlying cause for your symptoms.
For many people stress illness is diagnosed only after nothing else can be found wrong, in other words they have what is known as a 'Medically Unexplained Symptom'. For others they may have been given a diagnosis, but the diagnostic label is descriptive of the condition, such as Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) or Fibromyalgia and the actual cause is unknown. Alternatively the pain is linked to what are actually ‘normal’ abnormalities, such as spinal degeneration/wear and tear or a prolapsed disc that have been found during medical tests. If the underlying cause is actually stress illness and it is not addressed though, then symptoms often become chronic or recur.
