I would assume blood clot is the reason you had these blood factors checked. Stress can increase blood factors but not double the normal levels. Please follow with your hematologist for theses abnormalities.

Persistently elevated factor VIII and VWF are associated with increased risk of blood clots in circulation. Inflammation can raise levels of factor VIII and it is important to have follow-up tests. It would be prudent to consult a hematologist. Wish you good health!
