background

I'm 52 years old, Ive been to the heart doctor several times and have gotten the all clear. However I still now and then get this very frightening feeling in the center of my chest where I feel like my heart just stopped or skipped two beats and I have to gasp for air. I'm very healthy, my blood pressure is 110/70, my heart bpm is 66. I exercise. I eat healthy. Why does this happen to me? It occurs about once every few weeks. Can I safely say its menopause or should I go back to the heart doctor? I do have PVC's which I'm told are fine, but stress and caffeine can make them worse.

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
