    Do not fret, it happened to me, and I am alive and just fine.  Took me months, though. Hang on, it will pass.

    My palps each month were getting me down, various trips to a&e to be told 'panic attacks' I've since been diagnosed with paroxysmal AF, apparently this can happen with the onset of menopause, either way keep bugging ur GP if ur unhappy, we shouldn't have to put up with this x

    Would appear that palps are par for the course during this 'orrible trek. Only experienced very mild ones so far - last week in particular. Just finished yet another P (mad) and found I was a little 'over-breathing' (not quite hypervent'g), which I sorta breath myself out of.  The Palps are a bit of a reminder of things changing, so again I sorta try to calm myself. 

    I know they'll get worse, as will the hot sweats (just had a coffee in McDs:  that was fun. Might have to give them a swing!).

    When things get more pronouced, I truly think that'll be me back to the GP for some HRT. I can't let this monster rule me. 

    Afterall, I'm the ONLY Monster in this house.......apparently, so I'm told (emm, maybe that time's arrived, and I'm too busy sweating and moaning to notice, tee heelol!)
