  1. Upset stomach
  2. Unexplained indigestion
  3. Headaches, Back aches, shoulder pain
  4. Muscle Spasms
  5. Skipping monthly menstrual periods (women)
  6. Constipation
  7. Diarrhea
  8. Hyperventilation (shortness of breathe)
  9. A rash/rashes on the skin
10. Weight loss (including lack of eating)

The American Psychological Association reports, "One-third of Americans are living with extreme stress and nearly half of Americans (48 percent) believe that their stress has increased over the past five years."
