Anyone got relief for palpitations?
Hi everyone. I'm 52 and I've been going thru menopause for the past 2 yrs. It all started with hot flashes and palpitations. A yr ago, I saw a cardiologist and all tests were good except for slight mitral valve prolapse. I knew about the mitral prolapse since I was in my 20's and had palps all my life, but suddenly these got scary.
Bloodwork showed near postmenopausal, and anemia. Iron helped with the rapid pulse and fatigue and the palps lessened. After a few months, they went away almost completely. But now they're back, not as bad, but bad enough to keep me from sleeping. Recent bloodwork shows anemia is not the problem.
It has to be the changing hormones. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm so tired and sleepy most of the time and tired of being anxious about this.
Thanks for listening. Sorry for rattling on.
