Does Stress Cause Strokes or Heart Attacks?

Can anxiety and stress cause a heart attack? Research shows chronic stress can potentially lead to heart attacks and stroke. Feeling constantly stressed could increase your risk of heart and circulatory disease. The researchers, from Harvard University, suggested stress could be as important a risk factor like smoking.

The physical symptoms of anxiety can damage our body and lead to coronary disease. There is a connection between anxiety and heart disorders, such as weakening of the heart muscle, and heart failure.


The most common cause of a stroke is the blockage of an artery in the brain as part of the brain is deprived of blood and oxygen because of the clotted blood vessels. 


What Happens in the Brain During a Stroke?
There are two main types of stroke.

1) Hemorrhagic stroke is caused by bleeding in the brain. They happen due to a weak spot in the wall of the vessel, which can cause an aneurysm (bulging of the vessel wall). The vessels can also be weakened by chronic, high blood pressure and break from force. When the vessel breaks, the blood leaks into the surrounding tissue and the brain fails to get the oxygen and nutrients it needs.

2) Ischemic stroke results from blocked arteries, which often occur from cholesterol buildup. 

Does stress cause strokes? Everyone has different tolerances to stress.“One person’s stress is not the same as another’s. Some folks have a lot of stress just from dealing with kids and finances. Others might carry the stress of running a small business or an entire corporation. Then, there are jobs where people are faced with real-world dangers, like firefighters and police officers where real-world dangers are no big deal and they are as happy as anyone else. Regardless of your job, if you feel you’re under stress, you probably are,” Dr. Sundermann says.


Dr. Sundermann confirms that there’s evidence that chronic stress does increase stroke risk.  When we are under constant stress,  our body has high levels of cortisol, coupled with the effects of other stress hormones, which causes retention of salt and our blood pressure increases. “Over time, that would cause stress on blood vessels. Stress also causes an increase in blood sugar, which means the vessels can’t dilate or contract to better control blood flow. Increased cortisol also disrupts sleep cycles, which can make us more stressed and release more cortisol […] Simply, when we are tired we are less likely to exercise and more likely to eat poorly,” Dr. Sundermann says.

During any form of stress, either we feel nervous, fear or grief, our brain triggers a release of chemicals to prepare for a threat.  Two primary chemicals the brain release are cortisol and adrenaline. Cortisol is a hormone that forces our body to retain water and sodium that help to keep blood pressure up. Cortisol also has several mechanisms to store sugar and make sure that we have sugar available for use and assure that our bodies have fuel to run. Cortisol increases dramatically as we run from a dangerous animal, or fight off an attacker,  or deal with a tricky project.  

Adrenaline is also known as epinephrine, which is a type of catecholamines. Adrenaline causes increased heart rate and increased blood pressure to pump blood to vital organs.


Ask yourself these questions to check if you are stressed out. 

  • Does your significant other or people around you tell you that you seem stressed?
  • Are you at odds with friends, coworkers and family members more than normal?
  • Do you find less joy in things that normally make you happy?
  • Do you find it difficult to fall asleep? Do you suffer from insomnia? 
  • Do you have a hard time getting out of bed?
  • Do you resort to alcohol, tobacco or binge eating/ emotional eating to alleviate your stress?


Other physical signs which show that you are under high stress:  Pain or tension in your head, neck and stomach. Also, our muscles tend to tense up when we’re stressed, and over time this can cause headaches(migraines) and digestive problems.


Untreated heatstroke can quickly damage your brain, heart, kidneys and muscles. The damage worsens the longer treatment is delayed, increasing your risk of serious complications or death.

Inspirational Quotes from ‘The Little Prince’“It is lonely when you’re among people too.”


Wise Library 1985

Life can be beautiful without perfection. There’s a strong link between unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, people only witness unconditional love during hard times. Unconditional love is found in imperfections. Imperfections teach us to be humble and compassionate. If you believe in miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the power of tenderness. Earn approval and luck from God. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” for “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we grow. There's a strong connection between unhealed trauma and a dysfunctional immune system. If you rush yourself to become a better me, that might be a sign of unhealed trauma. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Negative emotions and chronic stress sabotage people's immune system. 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems, and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” Muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that high blood sugar leads to reduced muscle mass. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness. People suffer from suppressed anger and pessimism. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies, and snobs. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God.
