How does stress affect your veins?

Stress negatively affects your health. In addition to anxiety and depression, its symptoms could also be physical, such as headaches, stomach aches or fatigue.

Unfortunately, stress can also affect your vascular system.

How does stress affect your vascular health?

The risk of developing a venous disorder can be predetermined by a number of factors, including family and medical history and lifestyle choices. When you are always dealing with stress, your veins will feel it too!

  • Stress can increase your heart rate and blood pressure, which is very taxing on the heart and can lead to angina, chest pains, and even a heart attack.
  • Stress can cause significant damage to the artery walls, as it leads to an increase in fatty deposits and fosters blood coagulation.
