I have been experiencing an adrenaline "surge" in my chest usually when I am laying down to go to sleep and then after that I get palpitations. It is quite scary and have no idea what may be causing them. I am a 43 year old female on no types of meds and generally healthy. My last ekg was a month ago and it was deemed normal. I have suffered with anxiety for years and seemed to have had it under control, but I have never had that adrenaline surge before. My life has been stressful as of late.View Thread
Glad to hear that I am not the only one! I thought I was going crazy! I'm dealing with these nightly. I have a doctors appointment next week for some hormonal testing. I think I am in perimenopause and this is a symptom. I will keep you posted and keep calm! I've been doing breathing techniques, it doesn't take them away but makes them bearable. Take care!View Thread
