Can stress cause you to not feel good? If so, what happens?

I haven't been feeling 100% in a week or two. but I have also been very stressed with school, and a few other girls that aren't very nice to me. could the stomach aches and head aches just be from being stressed? I'm starting to get freaked out. I'm 13.

Yes it can lead to all kinds of health problems like headaches, ulcers, hair loss, insomnia, cessation of menses, lack of appetite, anxiety, etc if you are stressed it would be in your best interest to see your MD and a counselor

You are welcome ulcers are like open wounds inside your digestive system they can be very painful they happen when the protective enzymes are eaten away by gastric acids. You know how when you get upset your stomach can hurt really bad? Well that can be the cause. Trust me I used to have a lot of stress =-)

Yes, stress kills. I have had ulcers, migraines and breast cancer from stress. Find the source and get help.
