    Happy Birthday Karen!!! 🎂🎈🎈🍷🍷

    Hope you have a lovely day and can just try and live along side the horrible peri symptoms for a while

    The symptoms you describe are typical peri symptoms I get them regularly throughout the day and even during the night, scary when it happens

    Everytime I've had a bad day I promise myself the next time a weird symptom comes up I won't panic but I always do lol

    Hopefully things will balance out for us soon Karen

    All the best to you and do something nice today...enjoy

    Happy Birthday!! Besides the symptoms I hope you are having a marvelous day. Hot flushes and palps, and rapid heartbeat are very common. I get the flutters and racing heart a lot especially around my cycle time. Hopefully you get relief soon.

    Are you post now?

    I had it more often and for longer post. It always started with an odd fluttering sensation first.

    Happy birthday Karen x. I've had terrible palpitations and a rapid heart beat. Everytime I try to tell myself to be calm but it freaks me out somedays. It generally is worse at night for me too. And a lot of the time, mine are almost timed in minutes as well. I've not flushed properly for a while but my face used to get hot and they do seem to be linked sometimes. I'm wondering if the Red Clover I take stops the flushing. Fingers crossed my banana intake and Starflower Oil will keep the palpitations at bay.

    Sometimes I get this nervous jittery feeling that can be followed by some frightening flutterings too and my breathing seems affected somehow. I hope we can get some relief from this somehow.

    Happy birthday! I have had palpitations for last couple of years....I am 48 and would notice them whenever I was resting esp at night...never when I was active. My heart would feel fluttery and would skip a beat. I had an ecg which was fine. I was speaking to a naturopath and she said I may be low in magnesium and potassium. As I live in Qld Australia it gets very humid and I do sweat a lot especially now in peri. I started magnesium supps and if I sweated a lot at work I would drink a powdered staminade sports drink. I spoke to my chemist and he said if you sweat a lot and drink a lot of water you can deplete these minerals. He said it would take a fortnight to feel a difference. Well it took 10 days and it def helped. They went away completely. I still get palps when run down and fatigued and I havent taken magnesium....but maybe worth a try...it helps in peri for many things as well. I do know this is a side effect if peri and it can be from adrenal gland surges. Maybe best to get a check at docs to put your mind at rest as well. Good luck smile
