Experts Notice Surge In New Heart Conditions, Attribute It To Post Pandemic Stress

There has been a significant increase in heart conditions among young people and experts in the United Kingdom are saying they believe it is due to “post-pandemic stress disorder” because why would it be due to something that is brand new and whose effects will not be known for years?

As many as 300,000 people in the UK are facing heart conditions due to this “post-pandemic stress disorder,” The Evening Standard reported.

This could result in a 4.5 per cent rise in cardiovascular cases nationally because of the effects of PPSD, with those aged between 30 to 45 most at-risk, they claim.

Mark Rayner, a former senior NHS psychological therapist and founder of EASE Wellbeing CIC, said that as many as three million people in Britain are already suffering from PPSD, thanks to stress and anxiety caused by the effects of Covid-19.

He fears this could result in a dramatic rise in physical health issues, such as coronary heart failure, if cases are not detected or treated early.

This is absolutely astounding. They have given it a name and an acronym already, convinced that this is the case. Did they even bother to check any other possible sources for these conditions?

“PPSD is a very real problem on a massive scale. As well as the condition itself with all its immediate problems, one of the biggest collateral issues is the affect it can have on heart health,” Rayner said.

“It is widely recognized that reducing stress and mental health problems is crucial to the prevention and recovery of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes.

“We are talking about as many as 300,000 new patients with heart issues,” he said.

“Everyone has heard of PTSD but we really urgently need to get our heads around PPSD.

“The pandemic and the resulting lockdowns it’s brought have had a massive effect on the mental health of the whole nation,” he said.

There is no doubt that stress is a cause for these conditions, but 300,000 new cases and the assumption is stress?

Vascular surgeon Tahir Hussain said that he has seen a marked increase in cases where he works too.

“I’ve seen a big increase in thrombotic-related vascular conditions in my practice. Far younger patients are being admitted and requiring surgical and medical intervention than prior to the pandemic,” he said.

“I believe many of these cases are a direct result of the increased stress and anxiety levels caused from the effects of PPSD.

“We also have evidence that some patients have died at home from conditions such as pulmonary embolism and myocardial infarction. I believe this is related to many people self-isolating at home with no contact with the outside world and dying without getting the help they needed,” he said.

Some people, like conservative commentator Candace Owens, are skeptical of the claims that the increase is solely due to stress.

“Is it me— or are a lot of young healthy athletes suddenly dropping dead this year?” Owens said in one tweet, but then followed that tweet with another.

“Never mind my last tweet! I’ve just learned that the sudden increase in heart-related illnesses is likely due to **checks Big Pharma notes** Post-Pandemic Stress Disorder. Nothing to see here!” she said.

Again, this is absurd. Is there anything new that hundreds of millions of people have taken that could be a factor?

Nope, it is the stress.
