I'm 49, had surgery two years ago removing scar tissue caused by a hystorectomy 13 years ago. They also removed both overies. I immediatly started having hot flashes after the surgery, and memopause kicked in without ever having symptons before the surgery. I recently noticed my heart rate is increased which is been happening now for serveral weeks. More so durning a hot flash. I have been treating the flashes with natural creams and supplements but this rapid heart beat isn't going away. Could it be from the menopause? Thank you for your advise
I have had exactly the same symtons, i am 46 and they started about three years ago, I woke up one night really hot and my heart jumped and started to race, it went on for a few hours, then it happened againa fter about 6 weeks, and then it happended again last week,when i was in the car, that lasted for three hours.
I am pleased i have found someone else wiith the same symptons.
i hope u r ok now.
I am 48 and also have a rapid heartbeat. I thought it was from my hysterectomy (hormone imbalances and all). However, it's actually from my thyroid. I have hyperthyroidism (overactive) which causes your metabolism to speed up. It can cause rapid heartbeat (tachycardia), weight loss, muscle weakness, etc. If I were you, I'd have my dr pull some thyroid bloodwork just to be sure. Can't hurt.
