Hi Mummytron. I started getting palpitations 3 years ago and my diagnosis was linked to a long term ecoptipic heartbeat which previously I had hardly noticed. I was prescribed betablockers which controlled the palpitations but they would always return. Magnesium was helpful too at this stage. Roll on 3 years and a host of other meno symptoms, hot flushes, dryness, uti, anxiety (the fun of it!). Doc prescribed HRT and the palpitations stopped immediately 🙌🏻

They seem to be my worst symptom. The joys of womanhood!
