Somebody must have diagnosed those PACs! If not, any new onset palpitations need to be evaluated and heart disease needs to be excluded. Women often have different symptoms than men if they have coronary artery disease. If your heart is normal, remember that palpitations are common during menopause.
For menopausal women who are experiencing irregular heartbeats caused by changes in estrogen production, the treatment is often a combination of lifestyle changes and natural remedies. The decreased estrogen production also puts women at an increased risk for coronary artery disease, particularly if associated with other risk factors such as a high cholesterol, smoking, hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and/or obesity, risks that can be calculated here.
Lifestyle changes that may help to reduce the incidence of irregular heartbeats during menopause:
- Reducing intake of caffeine,
- Limiting consumption of stimulants, cigarettes, and alcohol,
- Practicing yoga, breathing exercises, or other relaxation techniques.
Hope this helps
