    hi there. i had the heart thing about a year before my periods stopped. i had no idea at that time that is was related to menopause. it would come on when i exercised. it felt like chest pain if i remember correctly. it did go away after a couple months or so.

    This was one of my first symptoms after turning 40. It seemed to come on after eating sometimes and at night when I was trying to lay down to sleep. It was worse the week before my period was due, my cycle got very light and changed to 21 days when the heartbeat symptom started.

    Magnesium Glycinate at night seems to help and not overdoing it on caffeine. Also yoga, specifically restorative, nidra or yin which are helping me calm the nervous system.

    You should get it checked out just to be sure but know they will likely tell you it's anxiety. I had zero anxiety before my heart was thumping irregularly and I felt it all the up into my throat, so I chose to decline meds for anxiety. That could change in the future if these symptoms don't let up soon 😃

    Yes, Kim one of the first symptoms I had when peri hit and I didn't know it. I had them at night when laying down to bed. Very scary although, for me I think it was the start of anxiety. I was also having severe right shoulder pain off and on for about a year or two before I realized it was due to peri. I then had severe neck pain and that traveled to my right arm and now I have like carpal tunnel in my right forearm. All symptoms of peri. The list is endless. I've had to really educate myself. I did not know peri existed before menopause. Lots of good info on this site. I looked through past posts when I first found this site and it's helped me a lot along with all the caring ladies that have provided support. You are not alone. xo

      hi, young ladies

      so you tell me skipping heartbeats is part of perimenopause. I am seen my doctor real soon I am going to have so tests did because it's all type of other things I go through . we women's go through a whole lot just to go through a change. I feel like giving up but I am asking god to show all of the way. I have seen a PERIOD in three years how long does perimenopause last.

    Yes, it was one of my first symptoms as well. I wore a heart monitor for about 13 days and they could not find anything wrong thank God. Praying for all the ladies on this forum. This crap does suck!
