Can low estrogen cause heart palpitations?

Can low estrogen cause heart palpitations?

Uh-uh: Low estrogen does not cause palpitations. If it did, every woman over the age of 55 would be troubled with them. Low estrogen is, of course, physiologic (normal) in all women as they age, all men, and all children. If your estrogen level has recently become low, you may be troubled with a number of symptoms including palpitations but there isn't a cause and effect. ...Read more

Do you know anything about heart palpitations and the use of zocor, premarin, (conjugated estrogens) or atenolol?

Do you know anything about heart palpitations and the use of zocor, premarin, (conjugated estrogens) or atenolol?

Yes: Palpitations can be because of cardiac arrhythmias, but we also see a lot of people who complain of palpitations and do not have any evidence of an arrhythmia or fast pulse rate while they're complaining of it. I have never heard of zocor or Premarin (conjugated estrogens) causing arrhythmias unless there are other issues (for example pulmonary embolism with premarin), atenolol is generally used to treat palpitations. ...Read more

What would be your symptoms if the dose of Premarin (conjugated estrogens) is too high? Experiencing dizziness, heart palpitations, restless sleep and tremors

What would be your symptoms if the dose of Premarin (conjugated estrogens) is too high? Experiencing dizziness, heart palpitations, restless sleep and tremors

All of those: All of those are possible including breast tenderness or spotting if you have a uterus. If you have a uterus then you need to counterbalance the Premarin (conjugated estrogens) with Natural Progesterone (Prometrium) not Provera. I use Prometrium anyway to counter-act the Premarin (conjugated estrogens) even without the uterus as it is helpful for bone, brain and cardiovascular health. It is all a balancing act. I also do not use oral estrogen ...Read more

I have a cortisol level of 0.8. Can that cause weight gain, extreme fatigue, joint pain. Low bp, heart palpitations? What should I do?

I have a cortisol level of 0.8. Can that cause weight gain, extreme fatigue, joint pain. Low bp, heart palpitations? What should I do?

Complicated: Normal 8 am cortisol is 8-23 micrograms per deciliter. Since you don't use units, it's not clear if you're normal or not. Moreover, even if it's low as I think you're hinting, your Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) may have suppressed it. A cortrosyn stimulation test is needed. Finally, low cortisol could cause fatigue and low BP, but not the other symptoms. Clearly, you need to stay under your doctor's care! ...Read more
