Yes I feel your frustration!!!
I just got done doing a google search on that also for my sister who is perimenopausal and been having heart palps.
And yes, hormones play a huge role!!! That doc is whacked. Forgive her for what she doesn't know and move on.
My LLMD is a GYN MD. My periods starting coming every 3 weeks and she told me that the Lyme might be sending me into early menopause. Yeah! Like I don't have enough crap to deal with. ?
Anyway, I had a horrible herx a month ago with significant heart palpitations and a heart rate of 115 for over 4 hours. Went to the ER, had a normal EKG, so the doc wrote me off. I tried to explain the Herx thing and I realized he just wasn't gonna get it. Saw my LLMD/GYN and she gave me "Bi-Carb formula" from Klaire Labs for the next time my heart palpitations are irritating.
Also, I was taking Biaxin and Cipro. Which together can give you heart palps.
you might want to do a search for naturopaths in your area.
Good luck and God bless!!
