Work stress


Work stress arises from excessive pressure to perform at work in connection with insufficient opportunities for relaxation. If the stress persists for a longer period of time, this can have numerous negative health consequences, including psychological problems as well as physical impairments. The work stress is not only associated with burnout syndrome and depression, but also with an increased susceptibility to infection, allergies and various other diseases such as Crohn's disease or neurodermatitis. In addition, stress can be the direct cause of symptoms such as abdominal pain, headache, back pain or increased blood pressure. (fp)
