Hi KMC. I believe pretty strongly that when it comes to overall health, stress and self-esteem and anxiety and depression and worry are huge problems...they wear down our immune systems, they makes us feel hurt and worried about our current and future health, and they can even cause some very medically-wrong-feeling symptoms in otherwise healthy (bodily healthy, I should say) individuals.
I recently experienced some psychogenic pseudoseizures due to all the stress of the trauma coming back to me lately...at first I was afraid I was going to die, but it turned out they were more like blocked anxiety attacks. For the months leading up to and through uncovering my abuse (it happened at a young age and was blocked from my memory until a few months ago), my ejaculate changed, and were even completely physically blocked at points. I had a mysterious illness a few years back that was autoimmune in nature and had me on disability and pretty immobile for an entire summer (Henoch-Schonlein Purpura, which is somewhat common in children but exceedingly rare in adults).
The HSP I'm a little more iffy on, but the more recent stuff for sure has been stress/trauma/PTSD-related. It makes complete sense. It's all one body, one mind, one immune system.
I hope your health improves as your trauma healing process continues; I believe quite strongly that it will. Take care
