2. High blood pressure: When stressed, our body produces hormones. This hormone increases the blood pressure by causing your heart to beat faster and your blood vessels to narrow. However, there hasn’t been proved that stress causes long-term high blood pressure

3. Trouble having sex: Stress goes along with anxiety. Stress causes low level of testosterone, which plays a role in sex drive. Therefore, when stressed, it triggers the way our brain sends signals to the penis to allow for a good blood flow.

4. Muscle tension and jaw clenching: One may clench their jaws or grind their teeth without knowing it when they’re stressed. Stress also causes muscles to tighten up, clench their fist, and also lead to tension in the shoulders and neck region.
