Hello,

As this article says, a little stress is not something to worry too much about, but ongoing, chronic stress can cause or make make worse many serious health problems -- stroke being one. If you are feeling overwhelmed by stress, talking with your doctor may help and he/she can evaluate you to make sure your stress is not a result of an underlying health problem. Here are some stress management techniques you may be interested in trying as well.

Best wishes,
Atti
