Adding more anxiety to your anxiety

Posted: Updated:

Not to add to your stress, but there's another reason to make yourself slow down during the holidays.

Researchers at the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine looked at a 21study of adults, and found those who had the most anxiety symptoms were 1/3 more likely to suffer a stroke than those with the least.

Those symptoms include feeling unusually worried, stressed, nervous or tense.

 Researchers say it doesn't help that people with high anxiety are also less likely to exercise, and they are more likely to be smokers, both factors that increase the risk for stroke.
