Hi i have been having palpitations during my menstrual cycle very briefly.. they tend to occur for about 3 minutes where my heart will race. Sometimes with this if i am lying in a dark room i can see my pulse like a flashing light in front of my eyes (this flashing light ony happens at the same time as my palpitations i never see this on a regular day). I also sometimes get pins and needles in my fingers when this happens. Another online doctor told me this is a medical emergency.. is it? I have had this every month for the last few years. I do not have any palpitations at any other time, and my ECG with my GP came back normal. I feel it is linked to my hormones but this other online doctor has now made me panic and i am worried now. What do u think? This ll started after i had my first child... i had sinus tachycardia in my pregnancy and pre eclampsia at the very end of pregnancy. Could this have triggered something? Blood tests were also done for thyroid etc.. results all normal
No no other issues
