Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety attacks menstrual cycle


Avatar n tn So, give yourself a break, this can be a tough time for you. I charted my cycle with my anxiety attacks and it became blatantly obvious there was a correlation. I charted everything. When I had a panic attack, and the level from 1 - 10. My menstrual cycle, what other stressors were in my life and I put it on a monthly chart that I could show my psychiatrist. It made everything very clear and easy to see where my anxiety came from and how we could work to resolve it.
Avatar f tn It can be difficult to distinguish between the original anxiety, stressinduced anxiety and the medication-induced anxiety(if there is any). The hormon system is complicated as such and I know from my own experience that stress(increased stresshormone levels) causes me to become more emotional labile during the menstrual cycle.

Avatar n tn I have SEVERE anxiety about 3-4 days before and throughout my cycle. It is horrible!!!! I totally understand but haven't found a way to deal with it yet. Although, I had my horomones checked and I have no estrogen so they put me on HRT, which did help a little bit so far. I will keep you posted. Also, I have heard that Soy helps??
679731 tn?1226454934 I have been having anxiety attacks for about 8 years now. I have had an ongoing sinus issue for 8 years, and have had extensive sinus surgery. To my disappointment, the sinus surgery did nothing to improve my symptoms. It seems that when I have my worst "sinus" days, this is what triggers anxiety attacks. I find that very odd.
Avatar n tn Anyone ever had panic attacks from a herniated disc please reply I know I was fine b4 I got hurt thanx...
Avatar f tn Can anxiety attacks come even when you are very relax? I had been very relax, keeping myself busy all the time to distract myself and did'nt even get nervous or anxious but the attacks will still come out of the blue. I'm worry, am I having other problem? All this attack had make my life upside down, i don't even dare to go holiday and can't even leave the house by myself. Will anxiety go away naturally after change of lifestyle?
Avatar f tn I also suffer from terrible anxiety and with my first pregnancy with twins I was so terrified of the whole process as well as scared I would have an anxiety attack while in labor but once I actually got to the point, I didn't have a whole lot of time to focus on my actual anxiety. Now that I'm expecting again, I'm having the anxiety all over again and even more because I feel like I will fear the process more knowing exactly what I will encounter.
Avatar f tn I believe that anxiety can definitely affect your menstrual cycle, just like any kind of stress can affect it. And anxiety is for sure STRESSFUL. I noticed that the few months leading up to Panic Attack 2010, (the official name I've given the occasion), my period was very light and didn't last long at all. I was starting to get worried about that, then the great Panic Attack 2010 came along and now my period has gone in the opposite direction......
Avatar f tn I am just concerned that messing with my hormones will make my anxiety worse. I just wanted to know have any of you with anxiety and panic attacks had a hysterectomy and if so how did it go?
Avatar f tn Hi I am 35 years old and I have been having anxiety attacks for about 5 years now. They are really bad and it is hard for me to go anywhere or talk to anyone. I am afraid that I will have an anxiety attack around other people. I was never like this, I used to work and go everywhere and do everything for myself but now I can't even step outside my front door without feeling anxious and scared. It is so embarassing for me I'd rather stay in my house where no one can see me.
Avatar f tn I also went and saw my gyno thinking maybe the panic attacks and increased anxiety levels are from my menstrual cycle, i mentioned the facial twitch to him and he said as well he thinks it's from anxiety, i also saw an orthopedic surgeon this week (three doctors! bad week) for some reoccurring neck pain and he said the facial twitch can definitely be from anxiety. i have an appt with a neurosurgeon on july 16th (that's the earliest i can get in) and im going to see what he thinks.
Avatar f tn I have been having my menstrual cycle for over a month now and it's starting to smell like metal or iron. I also have this pain on my right side. It's not a heavy flow but it's messing with my lifestyle. What should I do?
Avatar n tn You count the length of your cycle from the first day of your last period to the first day of your next period. The length of your mentration does not calculate. Once you know the average length of your cycle, you can find out when you are supposed to O.
Avatar n tn I was wondering why I get so sick with my menstrual cycle, the first two days are the worst, I feel like I'm gone to pass out. Is there any I can take to prevent these sickness.
Avatar f tn A woman with a light period is not gaining much thickness in her endometrial lining during the early part of the menstrual cycle. This is usually an indication that estrogen levels are lower than normal. If estrogen levels are low, progesterone levels are likely to also be low and a woman may or may not ovulate with her cycles.
