Im 42 and obgyn thinks Im going through peri. The thing that bothers me most is the anxiety. At 40 I suffered my first panic attack outta no where. I went to ER. Then many times after. They put me on sertraline. A year later I went off it. Now Ive pinned down the anxiety to the day or 2 my period begins. Anyone else have this issue? I feel like a crazy hormonal lunatic. Oh and ever since I had that first panic attack at 40 I cant go into big stores or crowds. Its too much stimulation and I get anxious. 2 years ago an ENT said it was vestibular neuritis which goes away in a month. But now looking back Im thinking this has also been my crazy hormones. These have been my symptoms since age 40:
Brain fog, anxiety, heavy periods, fatigue, forgetfulness, longer cycles, sore breasts more frequently, intense cramps, stomach issues. So ya I accept Im changing. It sucks. The anxiety bothers me most. It can be crippling. Anyone else experiencing this? How do u even deal with it? Thanks.
