Concerns about dangerous side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine, such as reports of myocarditis and pericarditis — the inflammation of the heart muscle and the outer lining of the heart — garner little media attention, yet there’s a report in the United Kingdom that as many as 300,000 people have heart-related illnesses resulting from “pandemic stress.”
That’s according to the Evening Standard, which cited two London physicians warning that “post-pandemic stress disorder” is causing heart problems on a “massive scale,” and could result in a 4.5 percent rise in cardiovascular cases nationally. Those between the ages of 30 to 45 are most at-risk, according to the doctors.
“Mark Rayner, a former senior NHS psychological therapist and founder of EASE Wellbeing CIC, said that as many as three million people in Britain are already suffering from PPSD, thanks to stress and anxiety caused by the effects of Covid-19,” The Standard reported. “He fears this could result in a dramatic rise in physical health issues, such as coronary heart failure, if cases are not detected or treated early.”
The article makes no reference to COVID-19 vaccines or any possible impact they could be having on the issue — a research abstract published on November 8 in the medical journal Circulation claims that the vaccines “dramatically increase inflammation” in the heart, which “may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.”
“PPSD is a very real problem on a massive scale,” Rayner told the newspaper. “As well as the condition itself with all its immediate problems, one of the biggest collateral issues is the affect it can have on heart health.”
“It is widely recognized that reducing stress and mental health problems is crucial to the prevention and recovery of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes,” he added. “We are talking about as many as 300,000 new patients with heart issues.”
Warning of a “trauma timebomb,” Rayner called for a doubling of current funding, at a minimum, to deal with a problem that could have potentially fatal consequences for those suffering with long-term PPSD.
Dr. Tahir Hussain, a senior vascular surgeon, told The Standard he has seen a significant rise in cardiovascular cases.
“I’ve seen a big increase in thrombotic-related vascular conditions in my practice,” he said. “Far younger patients are being admitted and requiring surgical and medical intervention than prior to the pandemic.”
“I believe many of these cases are a direct result of the increased stress and anxiety levels caused from the effects of PPSD,” the surgeon said. “We also have evidence that some patients have died at home from conditions such as pulmonary embolism and myocardial infarction. I believe this is related to many people self-isolating at home with no contact with the outside world and dying without getting the help they needed.”
Rayner said that while “everyone has heard of PTSD… we really urgently need to get our heads around PPSD.”
“The pandemic and the resulting lockdowns it’s brought have had a massive effect on the mental health of the whole nation,” he stated.
