Fluctuations in hormone levels can definitely cause palpitations, along with increased anxiety. My OBGYN told me this. Right before your cycle, and right after, when your hormones are fluctuating the most, is when you'll find your anxiety running amok!
Mine did for years, and still do! Then we had the "talk" about peri-menopause, and how many women have never had anxiety or panic attacks in their lives, and all of the sudden, as soon as they hit this time in their life, they started getting them out of nowhere!
That ER doc was full of crap! Hormones are a big cause of anxiety, especially in women!
