Can you get heart papiltations when in peri menopause? Thanks!

Hi!  Just wondering if it can be a normal thing to have heart palpitations during peri-menopause?  I am also having hot flashes and night sweats.  My periods are getting shorter and shorter.  Last one was 2 days and done.  Thanks for any help!

It can be, but because they are new for you, you should get them checked out. Most of the time, palpitations aren't indicative of anything serious, but they do warrant a trip to your doctor.

Thank you.  I have been having pretty bad hot flashes this week as well.  I am actually looking forward to my doctors appointment next week with my naturopath.
Let us know what happens!

Feel better soon :)
