Stress and anxiety are very closely linked, in more ways than one. In fact, exactly how they relate to each other can be confusing!

Stress can lead to many different symptoms, some psychological and some physical. The range of symptoms is huge and varied. Some of these symptoms occur for only a short time period; others seem to start after a prolonged period of stress and may be chronic in nature.
