Common Questions and Answers about Depression causes heart disease


Avatar f tn There are many causes for heart disease. There is a hereditary component, but many risk factors can be managed to reduce the risk such as proper diet, exercise, not smoking, moderate lifestyle, etc. What may be an issue with you as related to a heart risk could be your response to stressful situations that cause anxiety, etc. You are seeing a doctor and being treated so that may bode well for a reduction of any associated heart risk. Thanks for sharing, and take care.
Avatar m tn All other cooking oils once heated they produce free radicals in the body. And that causes inflammation. (Heart disease, arthritis etc over time) I've tossed out all cooking oils and only kept besides EVCO, extra virgin olive oil to use fresh only. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is also antiviral, anti-parasitic, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. It is also brain food as it can cross the blood brain barrier. The only oil that doesn't get deposited as fat.

1692704 tn?1307215380 I would like to ask if anyone else experiences depression due to living with Lyme Disease and how you deal with it? I would like to say that my symptoms overwhelm me. I find myself unable to relate to "normal" functioning people anymore. For example, I just attended a family picnic and others played games which I am physically unable to do at this time. I then find myself depressed and then not wanting to be around people. My depression and illness also interferes with my marriage.

Avatar m tn So I have occasionally suffered from presyncope when standing up (that is, I stand up and suddenly feel very dizzy), and three times in my life have fainted, once after standing up, once while cleaning the windowless bathroom in hot weather and poorly ventilated conditions, and once when getting up late at night to go to the bathroom. I have recently (1-2 weeks) had odd chest pains, sometimes on the left side but also sometimes on the right.
Avatar f tn At first I really just thought it was anxiety but now I'm really starting to think it's something else like my heart. I've read how women have different heart disease symptoms than men and they usually have shortness of breath and anxiety months and even years before they have a heart attack. Well, these are exactly the problems I have. Even when I am feeling absolutely no anxiety I will feel shortness of breath or nausea.

I take both Lipitor 20 mg and just added Zetia.
Avatar n tn As to skipped beats after exercise, this was a common experience for me during and after exercise. I had all the tests and I did not have any heart disease. Your heart may be telling you something, but it may not be heart disease. More probably at your age the skipped beats are related to other factors in your life i.e. stress, depression, anxiety, etc. Or they could just show up because it happens. Sometimes there's really no good answer.
Avatar n tn He has physical symptoms that we have been ruling out with the doctor for physical causes (his lack of belief that anxiety/depression is the cause). He has been on med's again for 5 weeks, but they are not doing their job. The psychiatrist has boosted & changed his med's to help speed up treatment, but so far not good. Bipolar disorder runs in his family & so does alzheimers disease. Could anxiety/depression cause these disorders to rear their ugly heads?
Avatar m tn Hammering cholesterol down with statin drugs is the wrong approach.” Causes of Heart Disease The Archives of Internal Medicine has just published the results if its “EPIC” study. Researchers took 23,000 people and studied their risk factors for heart disease. They found that changes in diet reduced heart attack risk by 81 percent.

Avatar f tn I'm worried it's cardiomyopathy, seeing as it's the most common form of heart disease in adolescents and children. My family history is revolved around cancer not heart disease, yet I'm extremely concerned as is my mother. Any advice would be appreciated.

Avatar f tn My heart races and I get fluttering in my heart as well. I went to a cardiologist because of the heart issue and had several tests, including a heart monitor and everything was normal. He thinks its anxiety and has prescribed xanax., I hate taking medication, so I try to avoid taking the xanax. I take it from time to time when things get really difficult and it does help. I hate feeling this way.

I was put in prednisone and augmentin but I got worse especially after completing it.

I have probably had this for a lot of years just was never told the name. It really upsets me as will I ever feel normal again. I know many of you have this and how do you feel. Will I ever feel energetic and do you go back and forth with hyper and hypo symptoms. This whole thing is discouraging. I am sorry to be so whinny.
