I think stress, prolonged stress especially, contributes to and/or worsens any hidden or surfaced diseases and issues that we may have. This includes viruses, cancers, heart problems, etc. Here are my symptoms:
At the start:
developed severe anemia
thinning, brittle hair
heart feels like its fluttering or beating really fast (doesn’t hurt, it’s just weird)
severe (beyond migraine) pain in the right temple/jaw/head area — once
blinding flashes of lights in my eyesight and feeling like my brain is “vibrating” — a few times
vertigo — numerous times
severe allergies — off and on
thin, ripping apart, peeling, ridged nails — all the time
dehydration no matter how much water I drink — all the time
stomach issues when I eat simple things like a sandwich or rice and beans (I’ve been 90% gluten-free for about 6 months, I feel great without that junk)
I have a ton of stress. I firmly believe that I could make changes much faster if I were able to remove myself from or erase my current stressors. I know I need to come up with a way to stop the stress, but right now it’s just not gonna happen. So I’m going to do the best I can right now until my situation(s) change.
I plan to take and upload photos, once I’ve started showing/making physical progress. The last time I went to a doctor, they didn’t scream ANEMIA!! or anything at me – so I know the changes I’m making are at least starting to show internally. Hopefully they will start to show up externally soon. Meanwhile, please feel free to check out some Grokspiration of people that have made some amazing changes!
