Feels stressed, getting pain in neck, back and shoulder area. What is the cause and treatment?

Hi there, I need advice on the following problem if possible. I am currently quite stressed at the moment (having been unemployed for a while) and as a result am experiencing pain in my neck , back and shoulder areas. The only way to release this is through vigorous exercise - which I do - but know that this is not normal or sustainable. Please give me some advice and explain why stress results in extreme body tension and knottedness. Thank you very much AJ

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Stress releases numerous metabolites as a result of many reactions taking place to meet the energy requirements in stress.

These metabolites cause damage to the muscles , nerves etc causing symptoms.

Best way to tackle them is by YOGA , this involves simple exercises which improve the circulation and wash out the waste metabolites from the body and help you get rid of the problem.

Wish you good health.
