Menopause

Lack of Hormone

Question:

CAN LACK OF HORMONE CAUSE SHAKING AND PALPITATION IN ALL BODY?

Answer:

During the perimenopause when the estrogen levels are decreasing, women may have many symptoms. Shaking and palpitations are included, but these symptoms could also be associated with other situations, such as an insulin reaction in diabetics (or undiagnosed diabetics). If this continues, I would urge you to see your health care provider.
