(CBS) - A new study finds people with HIV are more likely to have a heart attack. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh followed 82-thousand people and found those with the virus had about a 50 percent higher risk of heart problems. The risk was even higher in men over 50.


(CBS) - Moms, listen up-- it seems motherhood can cause symptoms associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Researchers at Northwestern Medicine found 11-percent of new moms over obsess about the health of their baby -- from an overwhelming fear that the child is not breathing at night to worrying about germs. Scientists say hormonal changes likely trigger the OCD symptoms which are usually temporary. But if they persist, women should talk to their doctor.


(CBS) - Researchers at the University of Copenhagen say finding the energy to keep exercising may all be in our head.  When we work out, the brain releases the chemical serotonin - signaling the muscles to keep going. But a new study finds that once a certain amount of serotonin builds up, the brain tells the body to stop -- triggering a feeling of exhaustion. Doctors say this new understanding of how the brain talks to the muscles - may lead to better treatments for fatigue and even stroke patients.
