(NBC) – Doctors are learning more about why some younger and middle-aged woman have a tougher time recovering after a heart attack.
It appears stress may play a significant role.
Yale researchers compared data on more than 3,500 men and women under age 55 who had a heart attack.
Overall, women were more likely than men to report problems associated with chest pain and quality of life a month after suffering a heart attack.
Women were also more likely to have major stressors, like family issues, conflicts, death or major illness of a loved one or personal illnesses.
