Other symptoms of stress
When we are exposed to high levels of stress long term, the body focusses completely on the stress response, taking away its energy from all the other systems such as digestion, immune function and reproductive system. It’s therefore extremely common for stress to manifest itself in your digestive system leading to problems such as bloating, cramping, indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea, reflux and general discomfort in the abdomen. Stress can also cause low mood, mood swings, anxiety and depression. The gut and the brain are closely connected so it’s not surprising.
