What are the factors that contribute to post-traumatic stress disorder?
Weegy: Psychologic Effects of Stress Studies suggest that the inability to adapt to stress is associated with the onset of depression or anxiety. [ In one study, two-thirds of subjects who experienced a stressful situation had nearly six times the risk of developing depression within that month. Some evidence suggests that repeated release of stress hormone produces hyperactivity in the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis and disrupts normal levels of serotonin, the nerve chemical that is critical for feelings of well-being. Certainly, on a more obvious level, stress diminishes the quality of life by reducing feelings of pleasure and accomplishment, and relationships are often threatened. Nevertheless, some stress may be beneficial. For example, although some research has suggested that stress may be a risk factor for suicide, a 2003 study found a higher risk for suicide in women reporting both low and very high stress. Those with moderate stress levels, however, had the lowest risk. Heart Disease The effects of mental stress on heart disease are controversial. Stress can certainly influence the activity of the heart when it activates the sympathetic nervous system (the automatic part of the nervous system that affects many organs, including the heart). Such actions and others could theoretically negatively affect the heart in several ways: Sudden stress increases the pumping action and rate of the heart while at the same time causing the arteries to constrict, thereby restricting blood flow to the heart. ] User: What are the factors that contribute to post-traumatic stress disorder?
