    Stress, one of the main causes of a heart attack

    Stress, one of the main causes of a heart attack

    Stress is a sudden reaction of the body to a demand or challenge, which does not have to be negative. A moderate level of stress is normal, but the problem comes when we can’t meet that demand.

    Stress is a very common problem in the daily life of all people today. Suffered by men and women of all ages, it is more common among younger than 45 years, where work and studies play an important role.

    The main symptoms to detect that we are suffering a high level of stress are:

    • Irritability
    • Nervousness
    • Anxiety
    • Insomnia
    • Headaches and even muscle pains
    • Visual and physical fatigue

    That a person suffers from stress depends on the personal, work or economic situation that may be happening, but also depends on other factors such as the way you are, if you have children or if you are self-employed, for example.

    Also the new technologies have a main role in the appearance of this problem, since it is very difficult to disconnect from work and/or problems if we are connected at all times.

    Stress can cause emotional disturbances, psychic problems and even a physical illness.

    If we have a high level of stress, whether at work, in class or in our usual environment, the most normal thing is that we lose concentration and lower the performance of our tasks.

    Other problems that can be generated to a greater extent are losing friendships if we are always too stressed and we say no to everything, lose the job if we are in a continuous level of demand, lose the couple or it can even be a cause of dismissal.

    Therefore, it is very important to disconnect and relax to promote effectiveness in everything that we propose, with some tips like these:

    • Talk with the people that matter to you and bring you happiness
    • Practice sports regularly
    • Go to the doctor if you suffer from severe headaches or muscular pain, or any of the symptoms described above, or you have tried all the above tips and don’t get the expected results.

    From the Checkups Unit of the Vithas Xanit International Hospital, we advise you that if you suffer frequently and intensely the symptoms of a high level of stress, you should consult with your doctor, as quickly as possible and do a checkup to avoid major problems such as a heart attack. Take life as a challenge that we must go passing the tests with a moderate level of stress.
