What are perimenopause heart palpitations?
Generally speaking, a heart palpitation is a pounding, fluttering, or fast heartbeat triggered by a number of potential factors. They include stress, exercise, medication, or in rare cases, an underlying medical condition.
When you’re having heart palpitations, you may feel as if your heart is:
- Fluttering rapidly
- Skipping beats
- Beating very fast
Perimenopause heart palpitations can sometimes be felt in your neck, throat, or chest, and occur when you’re either at rest or engaged in physical activity.
