Hi! Over the last three years I have had threeepisodes of rapid heartbeat.
The first two within eight weeks of each other three years ago and the last one a week ago.
each time BEFOE THE RAPID HEARTBEAT, I have felt extremly hot, and tired and very down, as the family had been gouing through some tough times, then my heart will thump twiCE AND MY HEARY WILL RACE LIKE MAD, THE FIRST TIME IT WENT ON FOR AGES, MAYBE THREE HOURS, The seconfd time for three quaters of an hour and the last time for just under three hours, it seemed to start suddenly, but the end sort of gradually stopped, especially the last time, when my hubby came home anad I had a drink of water, and he spoke to me and calmed me down.
What I was wondering was can rapid heartbeat be caused by really bad stress? As when I was ok I did not get the rapid heartbeat.
Also I am 45 so can this type of rapid heartbeat be caused by the menopause?
