5 Weird Things Stress Is Doing To Your Body

Did you know you lose 1% of your height between the time you get up in the morning and the time you go to bed? That's strange enough. But thanks to job stress, that shrinkage is even greater on workdays, says Swiss research.

It also makes your ears ring

And your skin itch
When your boss has you working like a dog, it can trigger unusual activity in the parts of your brain related to "central itch control". That can lead to itchiness, rashes, or other skin conditions, finds a European review study.

According to Yale University research, stress ups the presence of proteins that slow or shut down your brain's ability to grow synapses, which are the junctions where neurons exchange messages. This leads to a loss of mass in your brain's prefrontal cortex—the part of your noodle involved in decision making. This stress-induced brain shrinkage may even be related to dementia or Alzheimer's disease, the researchers say. 

And it gives you a stomachache
Brain-gut interactions aren't well understood. But stress hormones appear to over-stimulate the areas of the brain responsible for intestine regulation, which can lead to nausea and stomach irritation, shows research from UCLA.
