Hi , I'm 47 and I have heart rhythm .. Seems like I have them before or after my periods .. My palms get sweaty and my feet and some times I get dizzy .. Usually I can control them , if I'm really stressed then they can last for a long time .. They scare me so bad .. if I'm calm and not stressed then I don't get them ... PLEASE HELP ME !!!!

Hard to say what exactly is going on.  What are the symptoms beyond sweaty palms and dizziness?  Does your heart beat fast or irregular?  Do you have trouble breathing?  It could be a hormone fluctuation or could be a blood sugar issue or it could be related to the heart but odds are the heart is being affected by your cycle and approaching menopause.  I would see a doctor for a check up.  Get a full work up to make sure all your electrolytes are in balance and let them know what your heart is doing.  As well maybe see your gynecologist and see if you can get your hormone levels tested to see if they are possibly partly to blame.  Until then try to avoid caffeine, diets high in carbohydrates and sugars, and spicy foods.  As well try to drink lots of water and see if it helps.  I hope you can get to the bottom of this.  Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
