I was recently reading that PTSD may be one of the causes of other illnesses. They were talking about how high stress situations can cause damage to adrenal functions, which can later be problematic. Adrenal insufficiency can lead to some serious physical issues.Reliving the stressful situation can put more strain on the adrenal system. It makes sense to me, but I'm not sure how widely accepted stuff like this is. Either way, I guess it makes sense to have a complete physical check up when seeking treatment for this disorder. Thoughts?
