What'S To Know About Heart Palpitations And Menopause?
The heart may flutter, race, or beat irregularly during a heart palpitation, and this is a common symptom of perimenopause.
Heart palpitations are also called irregular heartbeats or arrhythmia. These are heartbeats that are suddenly more noticeable than regular heartbeats.
During a palpitation, the heart may pound, flutter, race, or beat irregularly. Palpitations are often short-lived, lasting just a few seconds or, at worse, a few minutes.
Palpitations may seem alarming, but they are often harmless and do not signal a serious problem, necessarily. However, people should still see a doctor if they occur.
Causes of menopause heart palpitations
A woman who sometimes feels her heart racing or missing a beat could have menopause heart palpitations. This is a common symptom of perimenopause.
Perimenopause is the time before the menopause, which, in turn, is when a woman has not had a period for 12 months. Afterward, women are said to be in the postmenopause phase.
Heart palpitations are a direct result of lower levels of the female hormone estrogen, which leads to an overstimulation of the heart.
Such a drop in hormone production can be linked to an increase in both heart rate and frequency in palpitations, and non-threatening arrhythmias.
