meno and chest tightness

I am having chest tightness and heavy feeling. I am in the middle of my cylcle. I am also having anxiety surges at night and strange dreams. Does this sound like peri-menopause to anyone? I am 49. It is really worrying me.
I have had heart checked out many times but nothing showed but some palps.

Re: meno and chest tightness

anxiety can mimic heart problems and it can be hard to tell the difference ..I have been to the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack and it turned out to be a panic attack..and mine was only menopause related now that I'm on HRT it has gone a way ..

Re: meno and chest tightness

Hi misstlynn,

It sounds like peri to me, I have had the chest tightness too. Just follow up with your doc to make sure everything is okay.

As far as the vivid dreams, aren't they so wierd??? I started having them about a year ago and they can be quite startling!!!! I feel like I am living an action-packed movie in my head most nights. They totally awake me and then I am usually up all night from it.

Hang in there, you're not alone!!
