I have a bit of a strange question. I posted a few months ago about having feelings like my heart skips a beat. It was happening a lot and it was pretty scary.
I went to the er and they saw the skipping but after a few hours it went away so I was sent home (blood test were fine ekg was fine)

I followed up with my doctor but by this time the heart skipping stopped. It had lasted about a week and poof gone!
he asked he to wear a heart monitor for 48 hours when I felt them come back.

Last month they came back and were gone.

This month again about a week it lasted then gone.

This is when I took a look at an app I use to track my monthly cycle. I notice that this month it happen on the week I ovulated. And the month before that I think it might of been then too but I might be wrong.

So is that even possible? Why when I ovulate? I made note of it and next month if it happens again during this time I will call my doctor but how crazy might I sound?

I did a little looking online and didn't find much. Some stuff about pre menopause but am only 34 it seems a bit soon for that!

Any advice?

A Doctor once told me palpitations can occur due to the hormonal changes related to pregnancy, menstruation and the decreased estrogen levels associate with perimenopaus and menopause.
Please remember I am not a Dr. so do discuss this posibility with your Dr. and let us know how you are doing.

Hello, I have dealt with palpitations for years. Like 16. I used to got to the hospital EVERY day, a horrible exhistance. I was told it was from anxiety and all people get these, just some of us feel them more. I am only now able to control (somewhat) my panic but the palpitations still happen, every day. My Dr. put me on Torporal XL at 12 mg 5 years ago. It helped but they kept happening and my dosage kept going up. Now I am at the max 200 mg, and they are starting to become worse as of lately. The issue with the meds is I will have to take them forever because I was told if I stop I will have a heart attack or stroke.. Nice huh? My Dr has never mentioned hormones so I find this interesting and I will be asking her about it. I also find that It happens more with my PMS and cycle... I am 37 and have had DRs hint at premenopause, but have yet to test for it. I recently had a stress test and many ECGs which all came back normal?? Please keep us updated and I will also. Thanks for your post.
