I have had palpitations for years. I have had numerous heart tests and monitors which show nothing wrong.
I have been having lots of palps lately.

I wonder if either one of these things can be causing them:

I had a complete hysterectomy years ago. I have been on estrogen since then.
I tried to cut down on the dose with the drs permission.
For several weeks, I've been waking up sweating, cold and even have some of this during the day. I have mood swings, and of course the palps.

I have acid reflux and its been acting up.

I have anxiety, but I'm not always anxious when the palos happen.

Anyway, they feel either like a thud, flutter or air expanding in my chest.

The palos are ruining my life.

I have increased my estrogen, but if that is the cause, will it take awhile to build up?
I use vivelle dot

Please give me your opinion and what might help.

….as a recent recipient of heart problems, your best bet is to see a cardiologist to rule out those worries. I caught mine just in the nick of time, and would not have done so, had I not had a recent "treadmill" test. It is my strong opinion that the heart, and possible problems are nothing to put off. I'm a workaholic, and put work first over sensibility, and nearly paid for it. You would think that after having a massive heart attack back in 2002, I would have taken my own advice here.shakehead

If you have ever had a heart attack, you will never forget it. It was some of the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life next to my double lumbar fusion surgery. shocked

If you have any signs, and or symptoms, then again,…. get in and seek a professional first.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

As I stated before, I have had numerous heart tests for this and a month long monitor.
I don't have insurance and I wondered if this could be caused by the things I mentioned

Hi Jazzmynn12345.

Welcome to the forum.

It's best to have a doctor make the assessment. Just curious, you mention having a lot of PVCs lately. How many is a lot?

Please see my comments at the following link, same forum, different thread.

At my comments are two more links, one saying that PACs and PVCs usually feel the same, so the an EKG would be needed to verify which you are experiencing. The other describing that in an otherwise healthy heart, you can have quite a few every day without significance (the Electrophysiologist says that 20,000/day would be when they would use ablation to correct it, in an otherwise healthy heart and patient) but electrolytes and the influence of other substances must also be considered.

If your rhythm disturbance hasn't been examined recently, it might be wise to consult a cardiologist, more so due to the other conditions you mentioned.
