Initially ,a man tries to adapt himself to face such a strain. However , if such a situation is allowed to continue for a long time  the person fails to adapt himself and then he starts getting the manifestations of abnormal changes one by one. At a first he gets Psychic changes such as nervousness,sleeplessness, etc. If the process is not recognized and checked in time he gets some additional disorders such as Palpitation , increased pulse rate , rise of blood pressure,etc. As these changes continue, he ultimately becomes  a victim of one of the Psychosomatic stress disorders such ass Heart attack, Diabetes, Asthma, thyrotoxicosis, Migraine, Rheumatoid arthritis and other Khatarnak (Dangerous) diseases!!
