I have been suffering with anxiety for about 2 years on and off now. However, recently after a few changes in my life it has become severe. I have woken in the night and gone to the toilet several times, burning up, pains in legs, headache, chest pain (and fluttering) and can't always breathe properly. I decided that enough was enough so decided to speak to someone professional. They diagonosed me with anxiety but said that it wasn't depression. I have been taking kalms for a while now but wasn't sure whether they was helping as the anxiety got worse after taking them for a few weeks. My doctor gave me some citalapram but I am scared to take these anti-depressants and because I'm not really depressed I don't know what to do. I feel that because this is on and off, and just had a bad bout of it the weekend, whether I should just try and tackle this myself without tablets. I am also 46 years old, therefore was wondering whether any of this could be to do with peri-meno, as doctors seem to think I am too young?? I don't see that I am, as I have a friend who has already been through the menopause in her 30's! I have had a blood test done today to check hormone levels but I know that they don't always show. If anyone can offer any other advice I would be really grateful
