anxiety

Avatar n tn I am able to manage the anxiety and hardly ever get panic attacks or anxiety anymore. Check out www.panicportal.com Hope this helps.......take care and good luck.
Avatar f tn I'm 46 and I'm most probably in a perimenopause too. I have bad anxiety since few months, not thoughts, but feelings in the body with fast heart beat. I have soreness and burning in the chest and in the both breasts too. EKG is normal. I have very low progesteron, hypothyroidism and maybe prolactinoma ( diagnosi isn't clear). But I didn't have this symptoms before, even not in the state of not treated hypothyroidism.
Avatar f tn Sounds like hormone shifts causing the mood swings and especially anxiety attacks. Seems we get adrenaline or epinephrine pushes without a quick nor epinephrine response due to hormone changes. I'm been through it. Doctors were no help at first, then I was medicated with a Beta blocker for an entirely different problem (blood pressure and heart rate issues) and wow.....
Avatar f tn I am 45 years old and for the past three + years I have been experiencing panic and anxiety attacks. I feel like I am losing my mind. I have a lot of episodes where I dont feel like myself and I feel sort of numb from everything - like a brain fog I guess. I have had my hormones tested and everything seems to be fine.
Avatar f tn I have had weakness. ,numbness and tingling as well as anxiety attacks and I'm 46 As a matter of fact I had an episode tonight of all thoughs things along with lightheadedness muscle spasms in the chest nausea. I called 911 because I didn't know what the hell it was. I had bloodwork,ekg done everything was fine. My doctor had done b/w on everything haven't heard back yet, but when I have had these attacks 4 now, there is a different symptom everytime.
Avatar n tn History of problem with extra heart beats and tachycardia (I believe nocturnal panic attacks) since age 30. Went on Coreg 6.25 mg at night 2 years ago (Tried atenolol beforehand but only could get 5 hours sleep). My extra beats seemed to be triggered more in the last 2 years by my flucatuating hormones. 6 months ago blood test during physical showed FSH at 2.4 mIU/ML, Progesterone at .6 ng/mL, Estradiol-6 at 376 pg/ml, Testosterone 48 NG/DL and tests were taken a few days into my period.
Avatar n tn I have had depression/anxiety/dizzyness for almost 5 years. I also have a seizure disorder. I am 45, I am in perimenopause, but I don't have hotflashes or night sweats. I have the depression,anxiety, and very dizzy. I/ve been to psychiatrists, neurologists, endocronlolginst, gyn. They don't know what wrong with me, i/ve been on all the ssri's. nothing has worked. I even went to johns hopkins (psy) put me on nortriptoline hasn't helped the symptoms. He says I just have to live like this.
Avatar n tn I am having hot flashes, my periods are becoming shorter and more infrequent, I am having trouble sleeping, my hair is much more fragile, sudden anxiety attacks, and the list goes on. I have recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, if that effects anything. Is it possible for me to be this young and have perimenopause?
Avatar n tn I have also been experiencing vaginal dryness, low libido, worsened emotional PMS symptoms, anxiety/panic attacks, body hair (face/chin), fatigue and "brain fog". I have hypothyroidism (Hashimotos) for which I am on Synthroid (labs just checked in July and normal), fibrocystic breast disease, lichen sclerosis (which was dx via biopsy a couple of years ago), and mitral valve prolapse. I have a history of a benign uterine polyp which was removed in 1996.
Avatar f tn TO any Dr. with knowledge of perimenopause; I am a 45 year old perimenopausal woman. I have had mood swings, tiredness, lightheadedness, dizzyness in the past several year, excessive hair growth chin lip etc. Hate it, hate who I have become. I recently noticed very dry skin all over my body. This has never happened I bath myself in lotion after each shower daily. The last 2 months I noticed my feet, legs arms and tummy look dry. Its miserable.
Avatar f tn I am on 1 mg of Estriadol and I am beginning to feel much much MUCH better. No headaches, not as many mood swings, anxiety which I've never in my life had is getting much better also. I was having full blown panic attacks but I didn't know what they were. I have never had one, but all of the sudden out of literally nowhere I would feel like my heart was coming out of my chest, I would hyperventilate and at times thought I was going to have a heart attack.
Avatar n tn My mom went into menopause when she was 42. Perimenopause can last for around 10 yrs. for some women and just a few for others. So who knows, I have no idea if that is what we are going through or not. : ( But it does stand to reason. Hang in there, and keep us posted on your test result and how you are doing okay. Have a blessed and worry free day.
Avatar n tn I am a 48 yr old female and have been plagued with PVC's and PAC's since I was very young. Always, I was told it was a benign condition. I suffered from anxiety attacks from time to time as a young adult as well. In 2006, after eating a relatively small meal with friends, My heart rate shot through the roof and the beats were irregular. Scared me/us really bad. I was admitted from the ER visit and stayed nearly a week.
Avatar n tn I have a question, can a symptom for perimenopause be low blood sugar, hypoglycemia? If so, how do you deal with this? Do I have to have a special diet? I already try not to eat excess sugar or white bread. I wake up nightly with the shakes and jitters which sometimes goes into tachycardia. I have a lot of anxiety during the day and so have been on clonazepam for a year and a half. . My eyesight is blurry most evenings and I have a slight cough.
203342 tn?1328740807 they can also teach you different things that may help you when your anxiety is at a higher level. i agree that the meds they have to treat anxiety attacks are rather sedating. thats why i don't like taking the xanax. makes me feel like a different person.
Avatar n tn The simple act of taking my pulse triggers my anxiety. I've had panic attacks for 4-5 yrs now and have been on zoloft. I started to feel much better, even after stopping the medication. Once in awhile I would get a flutter (once a year?) and just dismiss it. Recently though, after the initial panic attack Friday, the flutter happens a few times an hour. And I find myself thinking about it from morning to night.
Avatar f tn ) I still have the symptoms and now my anxiety has taken over my life. I'm trying to figure out if it's anxiety or peri menopause. If you figure out what it is before I do please let me know.

Avatar f tn I take it for panic attacks. I heard low estrogen levels can cause migraines, anxiety and night sweats. Do they do check this in a regular blood test? I'm not sure I have ever had this checked out. I had everything else checked...I am just so fed up with this I don't nkow what to do anymore. What medications has anyone been on to help them with this?
Avatar f tn just started having whopping attacks again just got a script for adavan I was so desperate and I do natural medicine! I was intrigued by something I read about anxiety being a perimenapausal symptom. I just turned 40 and believe I am in this stage anyone else have info. I am aware I do have lots going on moving, job change, family illness so I can certainly understand why I'm more then a litttle stressed..

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 n tn I was placed on the drug because of anxiety and panic attacks. The attacks now come nearly nightly and during the day. I don't fear them as I did in the beginning because I recognize that they will soon pass. My question is how do I wean myself from the Klonopin? I feel I need it but at the same time it almost seems that the drug is causing the very symptoms from which I'm trying to rid myself. I find that I get the jitters as the drug wears off.
Avatar n tn I've never had digestive problems of any kind until I started having perimenopause symptoms a little over a year ago. I am 49. My hormone symptoms last year were pounding heartbeat, mild frequent hot flashes and skipping periods. At the exact same time I started having chronic burping of air that I did not think to be related. My doctors dismissed the burping as anything serious, but it was extremely uncomfortable.
Avatar m tn I get anxiety in the car too, but probably not for the same reasons as you. I get it because I am leaving my safe zone (home). And i'm not sure if I would be able to make it back in time. Goes hand in hand with my agoraphobia. I'm not afraid of the driving bit at all.
Avatar f tn Ive already experienced what i believe is pre menopause symptoms, but could the worsening anxiety and panic attacks be part of full on menopause?
Avatar n tn They said there is no real way to test my hormone levels and all they would really do is put me on birth control in order to control my cycle. My doc. of 11 years told me a year ago when I started my anxiety attacks, that there's no way I'm going through the change. It just amazes me how many docs. have different opinions hence, my previous post on www.womentowomen.com...that website answered more questions for me that all the doctors I saw last year spending over $4K! for no real answer.
