What could be the reason for fast heart rate and night sweats ?
Iam a 39 year old female and have been having pretty bad night sweats for a couple months now and then this morning I had an episode of a really fast beating heart rate - no dizziness , no chest pain , no nubness, no difficulty breathing, just a fast heart rate which made me feel really weird, it was better if I sat down and got worse if I stood up - lasted about 30 minutes maybe and now its gone and I feel normal again - this is the first time this has happened - Not on any medications right now either, last blood work in September was normal and heart scan was normal - could this just be the start of perimenapause or something else
welcome to healthcare magic
madam the above history which you have given suggests that these might be perimenopause symptoms but you do have to rule out other possibilities,please do get your thyroid profile done .
