I Am 14 Yr Ols And The Last Couple Months When Im On My Period And Get Bad Cramps I Feel Like My Heart Stops For About 3-5 Seconds And This Happens Till The Cramps Go Away . Is This Normal ? Should I Be Worried ?
Brief, nonsustained palpitations are scary and are frequent, especially if you have a lot of caffeine intake. These are typically due to early heartbeats. That said, the extreme discomfort of your cramps may be inducing a vasovagal response that is slowing your heart rate.. However, without evaluating your ECG, your history, and a 24-hour Holter monitor (a recording of all of your heatbeats in a 24 hour period), I cannot tell you exactly what is going on here. My recommendation is that you be evaluated by a pediatric cardiologist so that these tests can be performed and to see what's happening. Otherwise, I cannot tell you if it is normal and if you need to be concerned about this.
