Tony in Westcliff asked:
Can stress provoke heart attack?
We need some amount of stress in our lives. Stress gives us motivation and enthusiasm. Some people however would suffer a heart attack when they are feeling especially stressed, but it's likely that the heart attack would probably have occurred anyway. If you don't have narrowing in your arteries, stress on it's own would not bring about a heart attack.
