Did you know that getting angry can actually make you sick? Ever feel ill after a disagreement with your husband or children? How about the co-worker that is constantly annoying you, until you finally snap.

Anger is a very strong emotion and one that can make you very ill. Below are some are some signs that will help you be more aware of this strong emotion and perhaps convince you to control it for your healths sake.

Heart keeping your anger inside, will release a stress hormone called adrenaline that will spike your blood pressure. High blood pressure is linked with stroke and heart disease.

Eyes anger may cause migraine headaches. Ocular migraine headaches cause visions of flashing lights and wiggly lines. Increase stress hormones may also constrict the blood vessels in the brain, causing odd optics.

Teeth - repressed anger can cause unconscious teeth grinding, that can occur during the day or while you are asleep. Grinding can cause facial and jaw pain and over time, can cause broken or chipped teeth.

Digestive System when we get angry the brain releases neurotransmitters called acetylcholine and serotonin, which can reduce the blood flow to the belly. The result can be stomach pain and diarrhea.

Brain Anger is usually not forgotten so it is stored in your memory. The emotion can trigger the release of high levels of cortisol and other stress hormones which may then shrink the brains memory centers.

Immune System When upset, you are releasing the fight or flight hormone called epinephrine. High levels of this hormone will depress the immune system making your body prone to more infections and illnesses.

A great way to manage your anger is to relax, breathe deeply, yoga style. Repeat calming words such as slow or relax or imagine yourself in a peaceful setting. You may also opt to workout and release your adrenaline in that form, and give yourself a sanity break. Whatever you decide to do, it is important not to hold your anger inside, you will be doing your body more harm than good.
