    Yes I have this too!  Sometimes I have felt very faint like I am going to pass out.  I've had heart tests but it showed nothing.  It is very scary and really aggravates my anxiety for the the rest of the day.

    Heart palpitations are usually caused by the loss of progesterone.  I had them too and still get them, but one thing that helped the most was progesterone cream.

    Heart palpitations can be due to hormonal changes. But before you assume, it is wise to see a cardiologist to be sure your heart is ok. You can then have your hormone levels checked and consider HRT. New studies show that starting HRT during the first 10 years of menopause may actually be helpful
