    I have just started having panic attacks and problems with anxiety. I feel your pain and need to get help for it. I know it's menopause related. I'm 50 and have not had a period for 5 years. I've just heard from the doctor today and blood tests showed too much b12 in my blood. Told me to stop taking supplement. Menopause sucks.

    Do you go to your Doctor or Gyneacologist for regular check-ups? If not, I suggest that you make an appointment and get your medication reviewed. You should not need to suffer like this in this day and age.

    Please don't suffer in silence - get yourself checked out. Best of luck. XXX

      So sorry to hear that. I realise this can make you wary of doctors but perhaps get a recommendation from other women in your area or just try a new doctor. You have nothing to loose and everything to gain at this point.

    Dear Ally

    I had my ovaries removed over a year ago due to family history, I was entering menopause anyway. Six months after surgery the anxiety and panic attacks happened. I already suffer with agoraphobia in a sense but I was having panic attacks out of the blue even at home. I dont think drinking too much caffeine helped me. I started taking multi vits for 50plus and this seems to have helped me and I dont feel anxious like I did. I think low magnesium can make us feel jittery etc, so if you arent taking anything I would recommend doing so. I know how you feel believe me xx
