From time to time I get heart palpitations which are uncomfortable and very annoying. I am 48 years old and I because my periods have become a bit erratic I pretty sure I'm menopausal and initially put the palpitations down to that. However I do notice a bit of a pattern and that is after a stressful situation and/or very busy time I get them but not until after the event. I had a breast lump removed 4 weeks ago after finding it and having it diagnosed as a benign tumour called a Hamatoma, so all is good but for the last 3 plus weeks I have been having these palpitations and they have lasted longer then before. I feel I'm my worst own enemy as the more I seem to be aware of them the more I stress about them and so the more I get them! I would love to know how to be shot of them so any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have an under active thyroid for several years and I take 75 mg a day take Vit C, Co-Q-10, Black Cohosh and evening primrose oil each day.
