An article by health website Healthline said that long-term stress can affect 6 organ systems in the body, which are the central nervous system, cardiovascular system, digestive system, muscles, and nerves.

The central nervous system is “in charge” of reactions to stress by releasing hormones that increase heart rate, sweating, rapid breathing… If constantly in a stressful situation, the nervous system will not function properly

Under the influence of stress, the heart beats faster to pump oxygen to muscle groups.

For the digestive system, stress increases stomach acid, causing heartburn and reflux.

When constantly in a state of tension, muscle groups will not rest, leading to headaches, back pain, shoulder pain, etc. People with this sign often depend on pain relievers.
