Can Stress Cause General Aches And Pains?

Question: Can stress cause general aches and pains?

Answer: Stress can certainly cause general aches and pains. When you are feeling the emotion of stress or anxiety, it links into bodily reactions. And the typical bodily reaction we see when someone is stressed is muscular tension. So if we walk around day in and day out facing stress without coping with it, it takes a toll on our muscles. They tighten up, they become achy, they become more stiff and over time this can lead to the chronic aches and pains associated with stress.
