This is insane! My heart has been flopping around in my chest like a fish out of water for 2 weeks now
I'm 47, close to 48 and still have a regular cycle. It started 2 wks ago with my ovulation. It continued sporadically for the past 2 weeks. Then the past 2 nights have been simply awful! Heart palps with practically every single beat and lasting for hours. Today I got my period and am hoping so very hard that with it will be a decrease in these heart sensations.
I had a bout of heart problems 2yrs ago with a rapid heart beat and anxiety feeling in my chest. I went in for all of the tests, EKG, Echo, 24hr holter monitor and my heart was fine. I also had blood work to check iron and thyroid and they were fine. They gave me Xanex for anxiety and with time it settled down to nothing. Now it's back, different and more annoying than ever!
I really don't want to go to the doctor again for all of these tests if it's hormone related. I just need some reassurance from all of you out there dealing with meno and peri meno that I'm not going to keel over and die any minute. Has anyone had these things this bad? And things have been going so well with my symptoms too
Then perimeno decides to rear her ugly head with a vengeance this time
