My father died just under 2 months ago. I have been feeling generally ok, coping, etc. I have a strong family. I have been having what feel like palpitations. I’ve never had them before. Could this be related?

Hi HP123,

I’m so sorry to hear that you’re father died just under two months ago. It makes such a difference having a strong family around you and I’m glad you have that. It is normal to experience physical symptoms when grieving and I’ve certainly heard others talk about having palpitations. We have a page on coping with bereavement that has some information about physical symptom - perhaps there’s something helpful for you in there.

It may also be useful to have a chat with your GP about these symptoms as there may be something they can suggest to help minimise them.

Take care of yourself,
