Heart Flutters and Palpitations
I'm 53 and about 6 weeks ago started with minor chest flutters which developed into my heart missing a beat. It's pretty terrifying and despite deep breathing and telling myself to relax it's not that easy and you are convinced something sinister is about to happen.
I've got low blood pressure, a healthy weight, avg heart ratebof 66, never drank coffee, exercised pretty regularly. Had an ECG which showed up an ectopic beat, having an echo and ECG fitness test tomorrow. Despite the Dr saying not to be concerned it's easier said than done. I do have a pretty stressful job but have been through more stressful periods than this. I'm not sure whether this is connected to the menopause but most things are so wondered what you could advise? I've had achy joints and still get the odd hot flush and have difficulty sleeping and am fatigued, this isn't helping.
I take a greens drink, magnesium citrate tho not regularity, turmeric, probiotic, fish oils. I did take a multi-vit but don't now and have got a Solgar B 100 complex and wonder whether to take that. I've read a mix of magnesium and potassium can help. I've also started to do some meditation.
I'm off work until 30th but can't let this impact the way it is at the moment. I need to get back to my life.
If you can give me any help I would be eternally grateful.
Thanks in advance.
