    I was just at the market when out of nowhere my legs felt shaky, followed by a racing heart, and a flush of sweatiness. It truly sucks when it happens out of the blue. It didn't last long, but it ruins your whole day. I can totally sympathize. I am going to beat peri with the same manta I used for anxiety in my 20's....there's no way around anxiety/peri, only through it. xoxo

      I think you responded as we all do...you notice it, it freaks you out , health anxiety goes through the roof. Then we get that checked out,all is well. You slowly try to not think about it

      Then another symptom hits....

      Hugs from all of us, get it checked but it sounds like my hot flashes

      Thats the way some present right before they hit...bet you have a period soon

    Hi Pam have had this many times one time so bad it literally sounded like horses running so fast and hard in my chest it is very hard to explain,, have also had flip flopping feeling which is extremely disturbing... but have had pounding many times,, also was thoughly checked out and if it continues you should also just because that is protacal for this heart stuff...I had it so bad i thought i had afib but everything came back normal and many of us this has happened to just watch it for awhile Ive also had it with shortness of breath its scary... alcohol, caffiene,stress, hotflashes can be some of the triggers... hugs to allxxx

      Omg i am so glad i found this site. I am 48. My OBGYN tested my hormone levels and told me i was in post menopause. I have not had my period for 5 months then today, YAY random bleeding. The past few months i have seen a cardiologist because i started waking up in the middle of the night with severe heart palpitations. After a echocardiogram and other random tests, my heart is fine. NOBODY can explain why i wake up like this. So my OBGYN put me on propanolol which is helping some. I still wake up some nights scared to death i am dying. It only lasts a few seconds then normalizes but it is awful. Other nights i am dealing with hot flashes, covers on, covers off. lol Thank you for this site. I am feeling a little better that i am not alone.
