I am 51 and have been having symptoms for YEARS! I was going through a divorce in my 40's and thought that was the reason for the palpatations. My mother started menopause in her late 30's, so I figured that's what I was destined to. I am now feeling so much better knowing that the way I feel is "normal". I find myself wanting to cry for no reason(and I do find a reason to let loose), the heart palpatations, the sweats at any given moment! Relax and it WILL pass. Know that you are NOT alone in the way that you feel and we will ALL get through this. Why don't men have to go through this? LOL!!! Hope this helps some.
