    Hi

    I'm the same I have lots of days with a skipping heartbeat and today is one of those days that it feels like its doing it constantly, I've been told by a cardio nurse that it's normal and can take a while to go. I think its stress that causes it and the more it does it the more you worry about it and are waiting for it to happen, it's just a viscous circle. I'm post meno but think I've only been post 2 year x

      hey Jill, that cardio nurse should’ve told you you can do is call the Valsalva movement, if you cough really hard or bear down like you’re going to have a bowel movement it stops that erratic heart beating in his tracks. I learned that from the Internet and also my gynecologist nurse practitioner told me about it.

      I had to start a new paragraph because I’m in let me write anymore in the previous one, strange. Also cut out caffeine, alcohol, and sugar. The caffeine makes the heart palpitations 1000% worse . it’s so frustrating, millions of women end up going to cardio doctors when all it is is a fluctuation of hormones, we’re nothing but cash cows to the entire medical field!

    Hi Lisa

    Thank you for your response I will definitely try those movements, it's been quite often today, think its prob stress as I've just moved home this week and also the menopause doesn't help either does it.. I've already cut out caffeine and have noticed I've felt a bit better since doing so. I'm going to cut out the others too when I've got sorted at home . Thanks for your advice on the skipped heartbeat, I know its hormones and normal but still scary isnt it xx

      I was in the ER a few times with the heart racing, they said it was anxiety, it wasn’t it was the perimenopause, these doctors just don’t know what they’re talking about ... so frustrating ! are you glad, happy about moving back home, I hope so, stress does wreak havoc on everything 😉
