    Take magnesium. It helps. Most people are deficient in magnesium.

    Hi Kim,

    Yes, I have had palpitations and flutters for about 5 years now. Have seen 4 cardiologists. Have a mitral valve regurgitation, but other than that....just perimenopause. Doctors not worried about regurgitation. I take calcium and magnesium and motherwort. Good luck. Many blessings. It is scary and disconcerting! Hope you feel better soon.

    Oh yes! Very worrying. I also have had cardio tests and found to have mitral regurgitation, but nothing else showed up. I've been on beta blockers but stopped them due to side effects, but have decided to take one as necessary, like just now as heart doing flip flops again. I wake in the night with them and it's very scary. Been having them for a couple of years now. I am not sure whether they are connected with my cycle as I have had a hysterectomy some years ago, so not sure where I am.

    Yes, I experienced this along with shortness of breath and dizziness. Had everything checked out and all fine. Then once I researched the menopause and started running workshops for women on it I found out that the reason is due to oestrogen. We have oestrogen receptors throughout our body including our brain, lungs and heart. Hence when oestrogen dips during the peri-menopause is can impact on our brain functionality (foggy brain and mood) and our heart rhythm. It should settle down post-menopause. Good to get everything checked out though to ensure it is nothing more serious.
