Stress: Overview

Stress is the general condition of emotional or physical stress. This condition can have real physical effects on the body that can be chronic and serious.

Emotional stress needs to be distinguished from other similar symptoms, such as anxiety, depressive symptoms, and other emotional symptoms.
