Well, all I can say for sure is that when I started getting hot flashes, I got palpitations with them, especially if I hadn't eaten much. My EKG and monitoring also came back ok and as the hot flashes have decreased in frequency, the palpitations are very, very rare. I started getting the flashes (what I call my inner child playing with matches
) when I was 41 or 42 along with other perimenopause symptoms and the palpitations would sometimes be so bad, I'd feel as if I might pass out. Now, at 49, I haven't had any in several months, maybe a year.
Pay attention to whether you're feeling hot or sweating abnormally when the palpitations happen. That'll tell you whether it could be hormonal. Good luck
