PTSD tied to higher, earlier stroke risk
Young adults who develop PTSD may be more likely to have a stroke by the time they are middle aged, a study of U.S. veterans suggests. Researchers followed almost one million young and middle-aged veterans of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan for more than a decade and had no history of stroke. Overall, 29% had been diagnosed with PTSD.
