Vasculitis patients at risk during times of stress.

 

Dr. Robert Spiera, director of the Vasculitis and Scleroderma Program at the Hospital for Special Surgery, stated: "You should pay attention to the patient's mental well being and be more aggressive about intervening if a patient is in a bad place." Barchester. 07/11/2011. (Also see: Vasculitis and Stress)

Jo, Great article! I have several vasculitis issues, such as Raynaud's and PH, and I do notice them acting up when I get stressed. It can be stress from various sources, such as not being able to get warm and just trying to take on too much and getting frustrated that things are as easy as they used to be. When the stress occurs, I do feel it physical, so I have to take a break and chill out. That does help.

 

Thanks for posting this.
