The reason I'm writing this is because I've been told by doctors that this is a fairly common problem and that there's nothing that can be done about it. I thought if I threw it out, someone might just know something or at least be able to commiserate with me. I've posted about this before with the same motive but haven't received the answers I hoped for.

Well, things have been nice and quiet here as far as my heart is concerned....Until this morning.

When the Red Cross person came back in to check my answers, she inquired about that one. I explained and told her I wasn't having any problems. She explained that I needed to be careful of that because of so many silent heart attacks women are having at menopause. YIKES! Okay, so I don't want to be one of those statistics.

I was up for quite awhile and finally tried to sleep again at about 5:30. As I would drift off, my heart, which seemed to be beating normally, would suddenly thump really hard. I'm sure it was doing it more frequently because even though I'm pretty sure I slept, it felt like I wasn't sleeping at all. When I woke up this morning, Aunt Flo had arrived. I'm pretty sure she brings it with her.

So, I think, maybe this is just a very common thing. I know it will pass again here in a couple of days and maybe it'll even go away for a number of months like it did this time, but for the time being, it's such a pain--not in the literal sense. It just makes me super tired.
