Heart pounding sensation. Stopped caffeine, sugar, alcohol. Due to lack of estrogen?

Hi- I am 62 yr old female in good health. Occasionally at night (early AM) I have experienced a spurt of heartpounding . This does not occur during the day. I have cut out caffiene, sugar, any alcohol and no food after 7PM. It has definately helped. Wondering if lack of estrogen could cause the problem as I am not taking any drugs for anything.
