Stress Syndrome leads to development of severe anxiety, dissociative and other symptoms that occurs after experiencing a traumatic situation. People with Stress Disorder have similar symptoms to those seen in post-traumatic stress disorder. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. Stress disorder may occur due to witnessing death, threat of serious injury to oneself or others and threat to the physical integrity to oneself or to others.
