Have you ever noticed that when you are really stressed out about something, you often get sick right after? That’s because stress can have a major effect on your physical health.
As WebMD explains, research suggests that stress can bring on or worsen some negative health symptoms and diseases. In fact, 75 to 90 percent of all doctor’s visits are for ailments and complaints related to stress.
Overwhelming debt is a major cause of stress for many Americans, and for that reason it something that can literally make people sick.
Additionally, many people experience debt problems due to medical bills that resulted from a serious health condition. Worrying about how they are going to pay off their medical debt can then actually impair their ability to recover from the health event they went through.
In fact, the American Psychological Association has reported that “for people coping with existing health problems, financial and interpersonal stress can exacerbate their conditions.”
What all of this information means is that it’s wise to take action to put a stop to your debt problems before your health is negatively affected. And if you are already in poor health, it’s even more important to act quickly so that your condition doesn’t get worse.
