Stress can indeed exacerbate symptoms, as can heat, there isn’t much more to say on the subject apart from just try to relax and stay cool =)

Cool. Defo keep super Calm. Stress just makes evrything so much worse. Had to quit my previous job a few years ago cause it was too stressfull and my symptoms were all over the shop. Now I do the same thing but in a super relaxed environment. And even if the pay isn’t that good at least I am relaxed and my body works a lot better. Try your best to keep away from stressfull stuff. I know not that easy :((
