More high cortisol symptoms - high blood pressure and chest pains
I have recently discovered a new twist on the effect that high cortisol can have on the human body.
I already knew that high cortisol can cause raised blood pressure. I now have more of an understanding of the mechanism behind this.
I also now know that high cortisol can cause chest pains and symptoms like Angina.
High cortisol makes the body more sensitive to the effects of adrenaline and noradrenaline, which in turn cause vasoconstriction, or reduced blood flow.
