I am a couple of years post-meno and have been having heart palps for about 10 years. Went to ER a few times, had them checked by Cardio and was told to just ignore them. Yeah, right!
I was put on Toprol 6 weeks ago for high BP and my doc said that this would also help with the palps and anxiety. It hasn't, in fact I think they have gotten worse.
I am also having "twinges" in my chest with the palps and sometimes a feeling like a mild cramp radiating from my collar bone downward. Of course this scares me, so I then get an anxiety attack.
I noticed this pain about 6 weeks ago...could it be a Toprol side effect??? Anxiety/Panic ??? or just plain Meno related???
I have a prescript for Activelle, but want to wait for a stretch off from work in case I have initial side effects.
I'm so nervous and scared. I'm beginning to become afraid of everything! :(
