    I have had this but if I breathe deeply it slows down. I get more a slow heartbeat though with feeling of missed beats. Have had ECG now waiting for a 24 he monitor. Today walking round Sainsbury's felt a massive thud in my heart. Frightened the life out of me. Good news is though., took my period today so my the horrible fuzzy head and feeling of falling over has eased slightly. Hope you get a better night sleep tonight

    Hi Maria ... it takes me 2/3 to get to sleep at nite and that’s every nite, so not till around 1 in the morin, then of and on till 5 then that’s it, no more sleep, this as been going on now for 2 yrs, Iv put it maybe down to the menopause, but who knows...

    And yes I’m awake with feeling my heart thumping some times, last nite at 3 in the morin i was testing mt pulse as felt my heart had stopped for a min 🤣 how stupid is that...  doc gave me two weeks of sleep tablet ( wow ) they worked great, but as soon as I stopped I was back to bad sleep again, so waste of time that was, as all it did is show you how much sleep your missing.. so yep your not aloan.. big hug 🤗x

      Hi chic.. yep I use to sleep well, but so bad now, the doc said can’t keep giving me sleep tablets as can get addicted. But for ME I don’t care all I want is to sleep, and the longer I’m awake I start to get agitated, and kick feet around in bed, good job I live on my own, as with this crap the menopause I think I’d prob have killed them by now 🤣... 

      so what is this med your going to get for your sleep? Is it some thing you can get from a Chemist or some where like that? As I’m will to try any thing just to be able to sleep😫

      Iv been in the menopause for 4 yrs now, my doc did a blood test a few months ago and said I was defo well in to it, my last period was March this year so I’m hoping it will stay that way, even tho I seem to get all the dreaded symptom every month, belly swollen, mood swings, and just the feeling I’m going to start a period, just so hope I don’t, as want to be out of this one day, and hopefully claim my life back if that’s possible... hope you get a better nite sleep chic, big hug 🤗x

      All I had was the blood test to see if I was going through the menopause, so not sure if same thing or not, and if I’m right is there some score thing that tells you if your in the menopause or not ?? X

      Ok chic thank you... my doc never said how high it was just that I was well in to menopause and that if my period stays off for one year I’d be through it ? So hopefully if true soon be there, knowing my luk I’ll get to 11 mth and start again 😩xx

I’m 53 so get till April and hopefully all done, well can hope it all stops and be some what normal ... do you mean thinking some thing is wrong with yourself? Or some thing horrid going to happen, as I do get that, and never had this b4 the menopause... I had my grandson for first time over nite, he’s 18mth and I didn’t sleep at all as scared if I went in to him and he had died 😧, soooooo bloody stupid, Iv brought my two girls up and never felt like that, y does this do that to us now? So hope it all goes back to normal at the end of this crap, or is this just life from now on, I don’t know 🤗xx

    Hi Maria and everyone here. I was once a very good sleeper and went through life dealing with things as normal. However at the age of 48 I feel like I’ve been taken apart and put back in the wrong places lol. I don’t sleep and if I do sleep it’s in 2 hour instalments and in the morning my heart rate is banging away and I feel like I can’t breathe so I get up even though I’m absolutely shattered. I feel anxiety times a million in my stomach and I’m shaking. I get heart thuds when I’m out and all I want to do is get myself back to normal. I’ve had 24 hour ecg and all is ok so I know it’s the perimenopause. My periods used to be once every 4 weeks but now 3 weeks so the week before is more often now too which makes everything worse. I feel as f I’m going insane!!! At least I’m not alone with it.
