Is it perimenopause if having fluttering in heart and skipping heart beat at night?
Hi, I think I am in perimenopause and when I get in bed at night sometimes I m aware of my heartbeat and sometimes it feels like fluttering or skipping a beat. I suffer from panic and anxiety disorder so I was just wondering if my symptoms I should be concerned about or are they benign. I live a very stressful life and I worry about everything. Thank you, Linda
Changes in herat rate or rhythm need detailed evaluation with EKG, stress testing and cardiac monitoring. Please be advised to follow up with your primary provider for necessary workup or referral to a cardiologist.
