    Hi, the anxiety is the worst isn't it? I know with perimenopause, your periods are going to be wacky and that is the more tolerable part. But the anxiety can be so nasty. I just started my cycle and the anxiety went through the roof! I woke up shaking and trembling, nervous for no reason. Its horrendous at times. Ive been using magnesium, calcium and Bach rescue remedy to battle it. It takes the edge off, but its just one of the worst peri symptoms. I also just started Rhodiola Rosea for the anxiety and nasty depression that comes with it. Hang in there, it seems to be all a part of the process to menopause.

      Hi

      I am suffering with the anxiety and panic at the moment. Up all night with horrid symptoms. I have been lying on settee all morning and my body is all nervous and tingling and when I try to relax a bit I get this feeling of being frightened.

      Thats exactly how I would feel. Im so sorry you are going through this as well. The fear is one symptom that would ramp up my anxiety. I suggest trying the magnesium glycinate and calcium at bedtime. If you wake, try 2 sprays of the Bach rescue remedy. I also take 100mg magnesium glycinate on waking if the anxiety is rearing its head. Hugs to you, I know firsthand how awful this is and this forum and the ladies on here have been so helpful and comforting to me in my times of need.

      I wish we lived closer as well. If anybody is in Las Vegas, I would love to meet at a coffee shop to offer any support for one another. As for the magnesium, I dont know if it stopped my multiple awakenings or that resolved on its own, but I sleep through the night and awake at 4:30am everyday now. Its supposed to help with the anxiety and help you fall asleep. I take 200 milligrams at bedtime and if I wake with anxiety, I pop another hundred milligrams with my Rhodiola and Bach Rescue remedy upon waking. I also take calcium morning and evening as well. Oh and 2 500 iu's of Vitamin D3. Forgot about that, its super important to use with magnesium.

      Michellestar,

      All over the place. Sometimes 2 periods a month and went from clockwork 28 day cycles to who knows when it will be. Sometimes 21-25days. They are less crampy though, I cant complain on that. Sometimes spotting days before, and usually lighter. But the darn anxiety and depression now comes with it.

      Donna, I believe Rhodiola is a stimulant. However, you may want to look into Ashwaghanda instead. I take that at bedtime and use the Rhodiola in the morning upon waking. I've just started them, and according to the reviews on Amazon, I need to give it some time to work, but hoping for the good results I read about.
