6 Major Signs Indicating You Are Stressed Out

1. Loss of Hair 
Stress is a common cause of hair fall. While suffering from stress induced hair loss called Alopecia Areata, your White Blood Cells attack the hair follicles. This activity causes hair to fall out. Telogen Effluvium is another severe stress-induced condition during which the person loses up to 70% of their hair.

2. Vomiting 
Vomiting is a major sign of being stressed out. The disease is called dry-heaving and it begins as a sign of stress and triggers vomiting and a condition known as “cyclic vomiting syndrome”. During this condition, the person suffers from vomiting and nausea for a very long period of time. It can be treated by drinking water and taking lots of rest. 

3. Loss of Memory 
Severe stress can bring out “Hippocampus” which is the part of your brain that keeps control of the short-term memory to higher levels of stress hormone called “Cortisol“. This can impede in the ability of your brain to remember things. Finding out the major reason for your stress and dealing with them can help you get back your memory.

4. Nosebleeds 
according to studies, many people who suffer from nosebleeds experience them right after being in stressed out conditions. An article published in the British Medical Journal suggests that nosebleeds could be related to spikes in the patient’s blood pressure that makes him/her stressed out. You can counteract such condition by drinking hibiscus tea so the blood pressure is in control.

5. Too Much Sweating
Excessive sweating and hyperhidrosis mainly from your feet and palms are caused when you are stressed out. Meditation and yoga can help you lower the sweating caused due to stress. Also, consulting a physician would be good to know if you are suffering from hyperhidrosis.

6. Fragile Immunity 
Stress releases catecholamines which are hormones that control the immune system. Elongated diseases of this hormone can disrupt their ability to function properly. Moreover, stress shrinks the thymus gland which produces white blood cells. It damages thetelomeres which are your genes that actually assist your immune cells to reproduce. The best way to counteract fragile immunity is to exercise at least for 30 minutes in a day.
