Is anxiety taking a toll on your heart?

Everyone feels anxious now and then. Piecing together all the components of your life isn’t always easy and it’s only natural to get a little stressed when everything doesn’t fit together the way you envisioned it would.

Chronic anxiety, however, is different. If you experience extreme anxiety for an extended period of time, it can change the way your body responds to stress and negatively affect your health and your heart.

Find a doctor

When anxiety and stress start to affect your health, talk to your doctor. You can find a Providence cardiologist using our provider directory. Or, you can search for a primary care doctor in your area.
