I am now switching to decaff but tell myself its real coffee!!
:-)Since I last posted my last message I have had my blood test results back for my Thyroid and all is fine.
I drink a lot of still get the odd episode,as the drs, call it.
Very soon afterwards I developed a sick feeling in my tummy and my heart began to race - but at a regular pace.
I am not happy to be on medication and wonder if i had left it alone would it have gone away when menopause ended. Two years ago I had a heart attack and last year a quadruple by pass.
I started to suffer from palpitations about six months after the op and it was thought I would have to get a pace maker but my cardioligist then put me on a low dose of beta blocker as I am on other medication for high blood pressure, and can only be on a small dose because it would interfer with my medication.
My GP seems to think they are harmless, but it certainly is very scary when I have an attack. I just took it easy for a few hours and it then returned to normal.
I started getting palpitations at the same time as the symptoms of menopause started and put it down to that.
