Hello, I am 50 years old and my periods just stopped a couple of months ago. Since then, I have been having episodes of heart flutters and palpitations. I also feel a lot of pressure and tightness in my chest on and off probably due to anxiety from my symptoms. I am also taking medications for my thryoid (hypo) and iron for borderline anemia. I also do have RBBB. Could you tell me, based on my medical condition, what might be causing my heart flutters (like missed beats feeling), palpitations and the pressure in my chest? Please note as well that my CT scan for my heart is clean (zero calcium reading).
