I don't know if I'd say it's normal but it is a side effect of not managing your stress well as the body is trying to find a way to cope with things that are going on. The best thing you can do is learn to cope with the stress the best you can. Here's a list of some ideas on how to do it I grabbed it from a site. Techniques of stress management There are several ways of coping with stress. Some techniques of time management may help a person to control stress. In the face of high demands, effective stress management involves learning to set limits and to say "No" to some demands that others make. The following techniques have been recently dubbed “Destressitizers” by The Journal of the Canadian Medical Association. A destressitizer is any process by which an individual can relieve stress. Techniques of stress management will vary according to the theoretical paradigm adhered to, but may include some of the following[6]: * Autogenic training * Cognitive therapy * Conflict resolution * Exercise * Getting a hobby * Meditation * Deep breathing * Nootropic * Relaxation techniques * Artistic Expression * Fractional relaxation * Progressive relaxation * Spa * Stress balls * Natural medicine * Clinically validated alternative treatments[7] * Time management * Listening to certain types of relaxing music,[8] particularly: o New Age music o Classical music Here's a few links where you can read more about stress management.

My son has been throwing up randomly over the past 4 days. For example, he threw up on Saturday morning, was fine all day Sunday, threw up at midnight on Sunday, went to sleep right after, played all day today ate normally and did fine until around 7:30 pm and then got sick again. After getting cleaned up, he has asked for food, and is playing like nothing happened. He does not, nor has he had a fever . Could this be related to sinus drainage? Could it be stress , as he is a foster child and I had just told him before bed on Sunday night that he had a visit on Monday with his bio-mom and tonight when he got sick, he had just become upset for accidentally bumping heads with his foster dad?

Hi, My name is Ivan. I work as a programmer 12 hours a day. Recently I have noticed I have mild headache that lasts for some time during the day and then it goes away. I researched and it might be tension headache. My neck hurts and sometimes back of my head and most of the time like something is squeezing my head. Pain is mild nothing serious it s just making me uncomfortable. Few minutes ago I was in a toilet taking a poo and was under strain and my headache started it wasn t there whole day and now it s here is really mild but it s bothering me. Is this normal? Thank you!
