Perimenopause palps

Have posted before about my palitations, but last night it was horrific!

I was just falling asleep when my husband came up to bed, so I stirred and then started to have a really fast heartbeat. I did freak a little bit, which I know we shouldn't do, but we do anyway. ANd it got worse. I used my BP monitor to record me heart bpm. Heartrate was 144! What then freaked me even more was the blodd pressure was high 153/103. I was on the verge of calling an ambulance, but my husband made me go downstairs and we sat quiety with the tv on. Over about 30 minutes it gradually came down, until I went back to bed when it was 120/81 and 85bpm. I awoke 4 hours later, with it beating fast but just lay and relaxed and must have fallen aslwwp again.

this morning it was 113/73 63bpm !!! Back to normal.

Anyone else had anything like this, it is so scary. I really tought I was agona this time!

Re: Perimenopause palps

I am 46 yrs and I get the heart palps alot. It can be scary. I worry that one of these times I won't be able to catch my breath.My doc says it is peri menopause too,even though my periods are still regular like clock work.
