Stress Test Redness, Swelling and Weakness

Footfiles Stress Symptom 5
6 von 9

Stress can cause redness and swelling in all parts of the body, especially the face. But redness and swelling of the feet can also occur, partially due to the inactive lifestyle most stressed people live, and partially due to changes in blood flow that anxiety and extra adrenaline can produce.


Foot Fix: Joint flexibility, strength and muscle tone all decrease in the feet when a person isn’t active, so try a few foot exercises like these to help strengthen the feet and boost circulation — both of which can help reduce redness and swelling. 

Overall Fix: Outside of reducing stress with breathing exercises, mediation and other methods, people who are experiencing redness and swelling due to stress should engage in light, low-impact exercise like swimming, eat a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water.
