Many other health problems were also linked directly to stress from debt.

The results of a new Associated Press – AOL Health poll have found that many health problems for Americans are caused by stress related to debt.

Stress caused from debt was found to lead to neck pain, headaches, ulcers, depression, and heart attacks.

The poll was carried out from March 24 to April 3 and included over 1,000 adults in all states except Hawaii and Alaska.

Out of all those who responded, 27% had ulcers or digestion problems, with 92% having stress from debt.

23% suffered from severe depression, with 96% having stress from debt.

Stress from debt was also found to double the risk of heart attack.

This in total causes Americans many hours of lost sleep, and health issues unseen in those with no debt.
