18 Symptoms of Dangerous Health Conditions Hiding in Plain Sight
Panic attacks and stress
According to Mental Health America, around 56 percent of Americans suffer from panic attacks without receiving any treatment for their condition. Left untreated, panic attacks and extreme stress can have severe consequences for one’s mental wellbeing but also physical consequences, as panic attacks can often indicate serious heart issues.
“Although chest pain and a tightening sensation are the common and obvious symptoms of coronary artery disease, there can be less obvious symptoms,” explains Carolyn Dean, MD, a heart health specialist and author of The Magnesium Miracle. One such less common sign is panic and anxiety, which many people do not associate with heart problems and do not realize how urgent they are.
