I'm perimenopausesal, and I get skipped heartbeats, especially when laying down. Are the two related? Has anyone else experienced skipped heartbeats during perimenopause?

    Yes, it's common during the perimenopausal phase.

    Yes I was worrying about this six months ago. I had ecg and 24 hour heart monitor. It was waking me with a jolt and very scary. Heart thudding and missing beats. I was told I had an ectopic heartbeat, nothing to worry about. British heart foundation has a leaflet explaining common in menopausal women. I've cut out caffiene and drink very little alcohol and this has helped. And knowing it's nothing to worry about helps to ride with it. Controlled breathing helps.

    I had the same for years and then discovered I was hypothryroid. Now I only get them if my levels are incorrect. Worth getting checked.

    Absolutely, I think I get them all the time but they are much more noticeable when lying down.  Not killed me yet though!

    Hi Connie, yes i do, they only last a a few seconds but it's not a nice feeling! its a common peri symptom. it can also be present if thyroid levels unbalanced, so you get them checked at your docs to rule out xx

    I get skipped heartbeats, and also the racing heart. It's scary when happening, but you will be ok. It's a peri symptom and can also be unbalanced thyroid levels.
