Re: Heart Pounding/Racing with or w/o Hot Flashes
Yes. I wound up going to a cardiologist about it. He hooked me up to a heart monitor, and pronounced me fit (translation "it's all in your head") when the ekg showed no racing heart. A few days later I was trying out a bicycle in a store that showed your heart rate on a little graph display -- and sure enough, there was the spike showing my heart started racing for a couple of minutes, then slowed down. I was so excited to actually SEE what I knew wasn't "only in my head". At any rate, that symptom calmed down, and other peri symptoms took over.
