Panic attacks linked to heart risk11th December 2008
People who suffer from panic attacks are more likely to develop heart problems.
Researchers from University College London conducted the study with 57,615 adults diagnosed with panic attacks and 347,039 adults who did not have the condition. Those younger than 50 when first diagnosed with panic attacks were 38% more likely to have a heart attack and 44% more likely to develop heart disease than people without the condition. They suggest that GPs should consider the possibility of heart disease in patients who have panic attacks.
