Customer Question

I am 53 years old and post menopausal. I have been very stressed lately and last night I couldn't sleep as I had palpitations that felt like my heart was going to burst out of my chest. I have had a very heavy feeling in my chest all day which won't seem to go away

Have you ever had it before?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I often have palpitaitons at night and I can't get to sleep. I am very stressed at the moment and I assumed that was why. I've never had the heavy feeling for the next day though
