5. Body Aches

The more anxious or stressed I become, the more I feel it physically. For instance, when I'm really tense, my neck, shoulders and arms become achy. Until I relax for a few days, nothing quite gets rid of the pain. The same is true with toxic relationships. All the negative emotions you bottle up inside need an outlet. The tension in your body turns into random aches. If the aches keep coming back when you're around your significant other, the relationship might need to end.

I love Snowlion's comment about how this can be transferred to all types of relationships. Sometimes it takes these physical signs to show you the toll of a relationship emotionally. Wish I would have known this in my toxic relationship, which you can read all about on my blog http://icouldneverloveyou.blogspot.ca/
I couldn't agree more with this article. It's amazing how the body has a way of letting us know when something is wrong.

I agree with Ellie, I've been extremely happy and completely loved up throughout the past year and a half - that's down to the amazing guy I'm with :) I think I'm just a stressy person ;)
Great article. Toxic relationships can take a toll on the body, whether they be work, partner or family relationships. I'm now very careful about who I allow into my life and what I will tolerate, and it has made a world of difference in my health.
These DEFINTELY aren't true I have almost all of them and I'm in a very happy relationship, these are more likely symptoms of stress in general

All of the 7 signs, I had and all gone when I finished with the toxic relationship
A lot of these can be stress from work, school, or all kinds of things. I wouldn't pin everything on a relationship.
