what are the long-terms and short-term effects to prolonged exposure to stress?
Weegy: There is no doubt that under stress the immune system is suppressed, making you more vulnerable to infections. Allergies and autoimmune diseases (including arthritis and multiple sclerosis) may be exacerbated by stress. [ This effect can be partly offset by social support from friends and family. Being stressed also slows the rate at which you recover from any illnesses you already have. Skin Problems Stress is known to aggravate skin problems such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. It also has been linked to unexplained itchy skin rashes. These skin problems are themselves intensely stressful. Pain Continued stimulation of muscles through prolonged stress can lead to muscular pain such as backache. Together with our sedentary lifestyles and bad posture, this makes back, shoulder and neck ache extremely widespread. Stress also is thought to aggravate underlying painful conditions such as herniated discs, fibromyalgia and repetitive strain injury (RSI). Furthermore, most migraine sufferers say that stress contributes to their headaches, which can last for days. ] (More)

how can stress be handled postively?
Weegy: Stress is neither good nor bad. It’s what we allow it to do to us that becomes helpful or hurtful. Depending on your personality type, consider how you can control your feelings, motivations and actions. [ Make certain that stress can be a positive energy flow rather than depleting your energy. Let stress be a reminder to take better care of your health. Good stress produces good habits. Bad stress does the opposite. Let your life challenges make you better, rather than bitter. The only difference in being better or bitter is the letter, “i.” Learn to relax, rather than over react. Be calm and think first before allowing your emotions to overtake the situation. Be constructive with stress rather than destructive with stress. Find a way to reduce stress and build a more rewarding life. ] (More)
