Racing heart that keeps me up all night long

by CZ
(Columbia, MD )

It seems that my heart starts racing at night the night before my cycle begins and for the next couple nights gets worse.

I'm already taking 50mg of oral progesterone, was found to be deficient in estrogen a while back so I did estrogen cream for a while and then switched to an estrogen trouche. Either way, my heart racing is still keeping me up at night ruining 4-5 nights of sleep every month and my sleep is disrupted on most other nights for who knows what but it's been going on for a few years and I'm so tired of not sleeping well.

I want my athletic life back and don't want to keep just trying to get through the day to attempt at good sleep at night.

Hi CZ,

Just out of curiosity, have you tried supplementing with magnesium glycinate or taking epsom salts baths?

I had heart palpitations and was diagnosed with PVCs (premature ventricular contractions). I started taking a supplement called "Heart Calm" that I found on Amazon; epsom salt baths (which gets the magnesium through your skin faster); and I changed my diet. I cut out caffeine, sugar, gluten, grains, alcohol and dairy.

After about 8 months, my PVCs are completely gone. I also take 400 mg oral natural progesterone (200 mg in the morning and 200 mg at night) and it has worked for me.

It took my body a long while to adjust though. It's definitely not something that works overnight.

Oh...and of course, check with your doctor first, and maybe a cardiologist as well to make sure anything more serious is ruled out first.
