Customer Question
I have been under severe...
I have been under severe stress for about 6 months. A couple months ago it began to affect me physically. I have had a lot of blood tests done and everything is normal. I thought for sure it was my cortisol levels, but apparently not. I have no answers and not sure where to go from here. Or...is this all just the stress manifesting itself in physical symptoms, where there might not be anything physical happening?
