As defined by William C. Shiel Jr., MD, FACP, FACR, “in medical or biological context stress is a physical, mental, or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension. Stresses can be external (from the environment, psychological, or social situations) or internal (illness, or from a medical procedure). Stress can initiate the “fight or flight” response in individuals.”

Recognizing stress can be the first step towards effective handling of this tension.
