Stroke: OCD could triple the risk of having a stroke

For decades, studies have found a connection between stroke first and OCD later.

“Remember our findings clinicians closely monitor blood pressure and lipid profiles, which are known to be associated with stroke in patients with OCD.”

The NHS defines obsessive-compulsive disorder as “a common mental health condition in which a person has obsessive-compulsive thoughts and behaviours.

OCD can affect men, women, and children. Some people start to have symptoms early, often near puberty, but they usually start during early adulthood.

“OCD can be annoying and greatly interfere with your life, but treatment can help you get it under control.”
