Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

You're good: Glad you got to read up. The hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and ARVD are ruled out by a competent echo. Lots of folks have palpitations -- catch a run on Holter and you will know the type. If you do not get short of breath, and there are five or fewer per minute, they are usually harmless. Taking up hard-core aerobic fitness can help this and make you happier in the process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If you have any high BP it should be treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
