Re: Rapid Heart Rate and then BP drop??
I have been having a very similar thing! I am 50 years old and still having pretty regular periods. For the past month or so, I have been having periods when I can feel my heart beating very fast and then I will occasionally get a lightheaded/dizzy sensation of a few seconds. At night I can sometimes feel out of breath with my heart beating fast and then like it almost stops for a second and then starts back up. When it does that, if I am just dozing off, it startles me wide awake! Sometimes it will do it off and on for a few hours! It';s making me almost afraid to go to sleep!
I have tried take Advil PM (doesn;t work), I am also taking Natural Calm, and trying to drink more water, nothing seems to work, except if i take a Xanax I have for flying, then I can go to sleep without my heart doing that.
So, I am thinking it is an axiety based thing, but as to why? Maybe hormones, or who knows!!
Just know that you are not alone!
