What is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) ?
PSTD is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event. The symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety. Many PTSD people have difficulty adjusting and coping for a while but can handle it time by time. But some of them get worse and need to get help.
The news research found that experience heart attack could trigger Post-Traumatic Stress Disease. From the study, 1 in 8 people who survive a heart attack will go on to develop symptoms of PTSD. It could make worse to increase the risk of having a second heart attack or dying prematurely.
The previous research has found that heart attack can contribute a depression and a number of small studies have suggested a similar link to PTSD. The findings are important for doctors and cardiologists to look for signs of anxiety in heart patients.The studies also looked at the relationship between post-traumatic stress and subsequent hospitalizations in the years following a heart attack.
