Studies have found those who experience stress and anxiety, tense and constrict their muscles, causing fatigue and cramps over time. You may be are familiar with conditions such as headaches and IBS resulting from stress, but its adverse effects can be further reaching. Stress-related symptoms can result from unresolved emotional problems.
