Hi Doc, my husband has been under a great amount of stress lately. In late 2006 he was checked out by our GP and had high blood pressure, but also runs in his family. Lately for the past week, he has been suffering with palpitations. Could this also relate to stress or should we rather have him checked out. He turned 33 a week ago.

Hi Gill
No rather let him go for a medical check up - let them also check his cholesterol and ask for an ECG of the heart.
