How many symptoms do you have?
The symptoms that affect you will often accumulate until you are forced to take notice of them. Don’t rationalise the symptoms away. If you are not sure – always consult your GP. It is often the behavioural symptoms that are noticed, as they are more obvious, but by this time stress has been going on for many months, maybe even a year or more.
