Stay Away, Stress! One of the best ways to avoid getting burnt out in life is to reduce stress before it gets to the point of no return. If any of the following sound familiar, a trip to see one of our physicians may be in order. For one, do you have trouble getting up in the morning? While we all have mornings where we just don’t want to get out of bed, it’s a more serious concern if you have trouble getting out of bed more days than not. Second, are you craving salty foods more than usual? Stress, in particular chronic stress, can cause people to desire salt. Therefore, this craving could signal more than just hunger. Excessive stress can also cause a number of other health issues, including foggy thinking, memory problems, light-headedness when standing up and a compromised immune system. If any of the aforementioned sound familiar, don’t hesitate to seek medical help. Are you unsure whether your symptoms are stress-related or something more serious, like depression or anxiety? Our physicians want to put you back on the road toward health. Visit our urgent care center today for an evaluation.]]>
