Hi, I'm three years without a period so i guess i'm in post-menopause. Can anyone tell me if some symptoms i'm experiencing (on and off) could be related to menopause? Just to name one: palpitations. My gyn says I should be having no symptoms due to menopause and anything i'm experiencing is not related to menopause (except for hot flashes). I find that hard to believe but maybe it's true. I've had all kinds of heart tests and the doctor says everything is normal. i'm 55.
I know during perimenopause that heart palps are one of the symptoms. My question has to do with post-menopause. I just wanted to know if there's anyone out there who knows whether i could still be having any kind of symptoms due to hormone fluctuations or at this point (since i haven't had a period if 3 or 4 years), would my palps be due to something else entirely and not associated with menopause. I can't seem to get an answer about whether during post-menopause, women still have hormone fluctuations and I've searched alot online and in different forums. Thanks.
