Burnout is a state of physical, mental and emotional exhaustion brought on by prolonged stress and/or overwork. Besides exhaustion, other symptoms include moderate-to-severe digestive problems, chronic pain, depression, poor immunity, low libido, difficulty concentrating, a deep cynicism, and (so unfair!) difficulty sleeping. It is painfully common, and acupuncture can help.
