Dr. Yaroslav Ashikhmin, a specialist in cardiovascular diseases, declared that stress causes high blood pressure, which leads to myocardial infarction and stroke.

In an interview with Radio “Sputnik”, the specialist notes that chronic stress negatively affects the heart, blood vessels, and even the immune system. He adds, explaining, stress that lasts for several days causes the level of blood pressure to rise.

He says, “We used to think that only acute stress was dangerous for the heart. But it turns out that chronic stress has a disastrous effect on health. Because it’s because of high blood pressure. “.

He adds, the high level of blood pressure “undermines” the body’s organs from the inside and can lead to circulatory disorders, such as myocardial infarction or stroke.

He says, “One of the consequences of high blood pressure is a myocardial infarction or stroke. Because high blood pressure “undermines” healthy body organs from within, it damages the brain, causing memory impairment and reduced cognitive functions. It also affects the fundus of the eye.” .

The specialist advises everyone who suffers from stress to monitor the level of blood pressure regularly, to avoid problems associated with it. If the blood pressure level is 135/85 at home, it indicates a high blood pressure level, so you should see a doctor.

He adds, to overcome stress, you can practice breathing exercises and not get emotional with everything that is going on, support relatives and follow a structured daily routine.
