Brief Answer: Palpitations related to pre/menopause stage... Detailed Answer: Hi my dear, You are at the age of 50, the age when the menopause problems get starting. In your case, the very first signs of your pre-menopausal syndrome were 8 years back when mild palpitations have started. I am glad to come to know that the tests you have run did result only mild palpitations and nothing wrong with your heart. I wish you will never deal with such problem in your life! I'd suggest to make some lifestyle and diet changes to help improve heart rate: - avoid coffee/caffein/energetic drinks - take chamomile tea before sleeping - if cannot sleep, can start otc herbal supplements for better sleeping. If still no improvement, can ask a prescription med for sleeping and relaxing. - avoid oily/processed/junk foods - breath fresh air - do more physical activity (walking, jogging,etc.) - start taking primrose oil supplement if you are having flushing With regards to poor vision, I'd suggest to consult an oculist for further evaluation. To my opinion, it could be due to hormonal changes. You can also measure the levels of hormones in blood for further evaluation. All the best! Dr.Alba Feel free to ask me other questions you might have at the next follow up!
