Depression causes heart disease

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.

215461 tn?1331862765 I guess it was only a matter of time before depression grabbed me with its nasty claws. The constant anxiety has finally won over. I want to live life. I look out the window longing for some normalcy. I feel lonely and vulnerable. It's as if I am the only one in my world, physically. I'm tired. It's so tiring to constantly be fighting a battle you can't win.

This caught everyone by surprise since my mum broke down after responding to the treatment. My sister has to extend her no pay leave to look after my mum. I could hardly concentrate at work worrying. Mum getting better but still prone to depression and she refused to take remeron to stabilize her emotions for fear of addition.
Avatar n tn Physical Signs of Heart Disease Swelling of Your Feet and Lower Legs Retention of fluid in the feet and legs is known as peripheral edema. Edema may appear as "sock marks" at the end of the day. Mild peripheral edema is common. Your doctor may check for this sign by pressing a finger against your ankle or shin bone to see if a depression is left behind. This is called "pitting edema.

1200240 tn?1289339687 My hubby has heart disease.He went along to the GP yesterday and he is refering him back to the consultant for further investigation as he has been coming over very poorly and his pulse was low. The GP told him the consultant will probably tell him he's to have a heart bypass which is worrying him now. Today he came over bad in himself as he has been doing quite a lot, he seems a shadow of his normal self.He gets so fatigued and feels very ill in himself.

Avatar n tn My questions and concerns are how can a heart murmur effect, bring about symptoms of depression? Is a heart murmur relavant? Thank you for your time and response. Dear Debbie, The link between the heart and the emotions has been described for thousands of years in religious writings and ancient medical texts. Increasing attention has been paid to the interaction of psychiatric disorders, cardiac symptoms (chest pain and tachycardia ), and cardiac disease.
Avatar f tn For instance, occluded vessels can interrupt a good flow of oxygenated blood and the heart cells functionality is compromised and heart wall movement is impaired, and occluded vessels will cause pain almost anywhere on the upper torso. But deep breathing that causes pain is usually not related to the heart. But there could be concomitant issues with a heart issue. Pain has so many causes that is difficult to have any decisive answer without tests.
Avatar n tn one can stay below this threshold for years without triggering diagnosis- symptoms- fatigue constipation depression raised cholesterol(heart disease) brain fog apathy dry skin-eczema ARE ALL CAUSED BY IODINE DEFICIENCY. our bodies are designed to be eating fish all day. pls buy kelp or lugols iodine and spread the word. the recommended daily intake is too low-to keep people ill requiring medicines.
Avatar n tn I think it's pure shock. The professionals don't seem to realise just how much depression sets in after heart surgery. Your husband is probably just hanging in there with the death word circling around in his head and really doesn't know how to deal with it. I had a triple bypass in 2007 which collapsed after just 3 months, and it's likely your husband has heard such stories which doesn't give much confidence.
Avatar m tn today after lunch with the girls, I got a voicemail from someone threatening to sue me. Of course, I was shocked, stressed, depressed. Felt like a **** magnet - cried and cried and cried. I haven't cried like that since... since my brother passed away - ok, that crying was worse. But I haven't cried continuously as I did today - took an anti sychotic to destress me, slept most of the later afternoon and evening.
Avatar m tn I have dislipidemia and coronary heart disease. I had a minor MI in 2001 after which I was put on ASA, a beta blocker, an ACE inhibitor and a statin. In about 2006 I started having stable angina which led to a quad. CABG in 2007. My medications are much the same as before the surgery. My lipids are excellent. By BMI is on target but I should get more exercise. Within the past year, I had what I thought was stable angina. A dye test was performed and was negative.

Avatar n tn I have never heard of a heart disease that causes belching, more of the opposite, stomach problems feeling like heart problems. Unless you are extremely athletic, a heart rate of 48 is too low. Have you tried standing up slowly to allow adequate rise in BP? You really need to address your BP issues as they appear to be what's causing your dizziness and black outs.
Avatar m tn I also suffer severe verigo and dizziness as one of the symptoms of my severe depression. Then again you may also want to do a little research in what is called Mieres disease. It is a disease deep in the inner part of the ears that can not be seen thru a normal ear exam. It causes severe bouts of vertigo and imbalance symptoms. It may be worth looking into. Most people with depression and anxiety do not suffer profound vertigo and dizzyness. I happen to be the exception to that rule.
