I'm 52 years old, Ive been to the heart doctor several times and have gotten the all clear. However I still now and then get this very frightening feeling in the center of my chest where I feel like my heart just stopped or skipped two beats and I have to gasp for air. I'm very healthy, my blood pressure is 110/70, my heart bpm is 66. I exercise. I eat healthy. Why does this happen to me? It occurs about once every few weeks. Can I safely say its menopause or should I go back to the heart doctor? I do have PVC's which I'm told are fine, but stress and caffeine can make them worse.

Do you have questions? Please feel free to ask.
