The temporal course of symptoms of stress exposure is highly variable. It is not uncommon for symptoms of psychological and bodily distress to persist for years. But, in many instances, what appears as delayed onset of symptoms may be more aptly characterized as delayed help-seeking. The general literature indicates that stress may be associated with a range of illnesses and diseases, but evidence of this linkage varies across problems. Little definitive evidence indicates that the stress of combat or war-zone exposure per se contributes to actual physical disease, although a number of epidemiological studies suggest that such exposure is associated with greater prevalence of self-reported chronic health conditions, poorer self-ratings of health, and higher levels of help-seeking behavior.
