Hello. In January I turned fifty and my whole life changed. I have never felt this in my head and body . About a year ago I would wake up in the middle of the night with my heart racing . I attributed it to stress. In January when I turned fifty, I started to get Palpations and increased heart rate . My Blood pressure was a bit high even though i never had a BP issue . I saw my Pcp . They did all these cardiac workups which were all normal. She later prescribed a beta blocker to help with my heart rate and palpitations. I later started noticing i was getting ringing//fullness/pulsation in my left ear would also come with a weird vibration in my body . Sometimes I would think my Bp was high but it was been normal . In addition, I would feel as if my stomach/chest was vibration/pulsating . I would also get a pulling feeling in chest and stomach especially epigastric area . Because of all these feelings it is difficult to sleep . People tell you about common symptoms of peri/menoupause like hot flashes but never these symptoms . Because of these symptoms, i feel as if i am developing anxiety . Anxiety because i don't know what is the cause of all if this . I also saw my Ent who stated that I had a eustachian tube dysfunction however the ear symptoms should have gotten better already . I am now scheduled for an Mri of head focusing on my temporal bone to see if this is a middle ear issue . After reading some of the the comments on this site I am left wondering if hormonal changes can really cause all these feelings . I haven't reported any of this to my gynecologist as yet because I wanted to rule out ear issue first . Sometimes I feel like my family and friends may start to think I am crazy . I have never felt like this in my life and just want some relief from all these weird symptoms .
