  • Ovarian hormones cause palpitation as seen during menopause....how are her ovarian hormones? Age 15 sees lots of ups and downs in this area.... Hyperthryoidism or other thyroid problems will also cause palpitations...how are her levels in this? She seems to have a lot of problems, perhaps existing conditions are already causing these palpitations.

  • Go to your library and get a copy of "Smith's Recognizable Patterns of Human Malformation."
