Episodes of racing heart rate, swollen feet and legs. Do regular cardio and weights. Cause?

I am 47 and have been having episodes of racing heart rate which I assumed was due to horomones and premenopause. Now for the 1st time in my life my feet and legs seem swollen to me but not noticable to someone looking at them. I do exercise cardio and some weights and have no touble working out hard in spin class or jogging 2-3 miles.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Good exercise tolerance means –there is no heart failure / swelling may not relate to the heart
It is from fluid retention and a weight gain of 10 % is generally needed for it to become obvious...
Weakness of leg veins could be the cause – can be confirmed by Doppler study of leg veins...
See an Internist / get yourself examined / at times, basic investigatton may be necessary...

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
