pop quiz for all of the new nursing students

  1. hey have a question that I know the answer too but it has happened to me .Can stress cause you too get strep throat after all of the stress of this stupid college admission test I lost my voice (just can't scream at the kids when they are swinging of of the chandeliers) but any way I have white puss bags (strep) so does lack of sleep and stress make you more able to get it ?

    stress can compromise your immunity to infectious disease, so it is very possible. i get sick every time i work a 3rd shift, just because i'm off my rhythm and don't take care of myself like i should. a lot of people get sick before tests because of all the stress. i see you're starting soon. get lots of sleep and learn not to stress out over exams. good luck to you!!! :spin:
