    Dear shirl

    Running up to menopause I would get palpations around my period and into menopause I get the odd heart flutter, thankfully they are few and far between x

    i do get them so bad they go up into my throat and i need to cough , but always am reasure im ok ,, alcahol , caffene and stress ,, and menapause ,,all are a contributing factor ,, you could get checked by your doctor ,, ask for full blood count and if not already a cholstrol check ,, because of how you feel it maybe low iron or a vit d depletion but as far as im aware nothing to worry about, i hope this helps  xx

      Hi Shirl

      I'm having severe heart palpitations this week . Though it had let up tremendously. It returned really bad the week my period should have come on

      You mentioned that low iron will cause it. I was taking iron pills because of low iron but had to stop because it upset my stomach too much. I'm thinking that could be my problem.

    Yes it happens to me . I'm 52 and I've hectic periods and a lot of palpitations . Go to the cardiologist to check but it's probably nothing serious . Mine told me everything was fine.

    Hello Yes i started experiencing it 3 weeks ago sad its very very scary. I had read somewhere here about it so i tried to calm myself and attributed to menopause. I did see my doc last week and she checked my heart it she said i was fine. These are very scary! Sorry you had to experience it too. Last week was bad didnt get much sleep and its only when i lay down for bed that i feel them the most. sad
