Hi, I have gone from having a normal, productive life to a wreck in the last year. I have been in menopause for 14 months. I started with occasional palpitations about 2 yrs ago which started to cause panic attacks. I have akso had chronic indigestion for the same time, had tests n nothing sinister showing so believed to be ibs. I have had increasing anxiety over the past 18 months. At xmas this escalated to panic disorder, looping panic attacks. I am now on 75 mg sertraline (AD), betablockers, diazepam when needed and evirel conti HRT patches. Palpitations coming more frequent...wondering if its the HRT patches. Dont drink, smoke or have caffein. Went back to work too early today...got oalps when i got home & intense fear. Ecg at xmas showed normal tho doc said something minor with atria...she didnt understand! She at first said it was afib then later said its not. This question mark is troubling me wen i get the palps...i asked her if she thinks theyre stress related, she shrugged n said maybe! Think i need echocardiogram to put my mind at rest. I know all of these symptoms can be menopause related. Is anyone experiencing similar? Thank you!
