PTSD Following Heart Attack May Be Associated With Poor Sleep

HealthDay (5/31) reports that, according to research published in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine, individuals “who experience post-traumatic stress disorder following a heart attack may find it hard to get a good night’s sleep.” Investigators “examined the link between PTSD and sleep in almost 200 patients who suffered a heart attack.” The researchers “found that the more PTSD symptoms people experienced following a heart attack, the worse their self-reported sleep was in the month after their heart attack.”
