Heart doing somersaults

Posted , 6 users are following.

For the last 4 days, my heart has been flip flopping. It seems to happen from about 3 pm till I go to bed. It is making me very anxious. I had a pretty heavy period last week and thought I might be anemic. I have been taking iron for the past two days. I have had so many scary symptoms for the last two years. Anything related to my heart scares me the most. Does anyone else have this flip flopping that comes on at the same time every day?

      I am also tired of these symptoms! They keep me anxious not knowing what is coming next! I hate the heart skipping. It really scares me. I have read lots of people on this forum say they have them too, but it still is upsetting when it happens to you! Take care and Thanks for the reply!

      I had an echo last year. I didn't have to have contrast, so hopefully you won't either. I know I get lightheaded a lot. I chalked it up to perimenopause. Who knows? Maybe it's not, but the doctor can't find anything else wrong with me. I hope your test comes out fine. Take care.

    Hi i am 44 and have been in peri since i was 35. I attibuted my heart jumping and sometimes skipping beats to peri! But it turned out for me to be symptoms of a heart attack. of course i didnt know that until i actually had the heart attach so be careful and go to your doctor for any chest pains or heart beat skips! Because what i thought was peri almost killed me!

      Thanks for your kind reply. I have an appointment coming up soon and will tell the doctor about it. They never get as excited as I do about things. Hopefully, it will settle down soon like some of the other symptoms. It is all pretty horrible ☹

    I've been having tachycardia (racing heart) occasionally - more lately than usual. It happens at night while I'm sleeping. I'll wake up with my heart rate between 115-140 bpm-- what fun!! I love doing "cardio" in my bed. I recently went to a cardiologist and had the 48 holter monitor on. I have yet to get the results back. I'll keep you posted. I hope all that it is is peri. I'm almost 53, have only had 6 periods this year, should have had about 12. It's been 80 days since my last period.

    Stay strong. I'm finding it hard to do that 😉

      I have also been having the racing sometimes too. I bet it is the hormone shifts during the night. I want off this merry go round. I hope your tests come back fine. Take care.
