Anxiety worse during pms

Posted , 6 users are following.

Do any other ladies experience worsening of their symptoms during their pms period of their cycle? I've been on escitalopram for about three months now and this has been happening for the past month. Just wondering if anyone has experienced this?

      That's good news..I get chest soreness and cramps alot especially upon waking up in the morning..I told docs about it and they gave me ecgs and told me I'm fine. .I have had 5 normal ecgs and blood pressure Is normal range too..and did some other blood test and full blood count is good too..so docs concluded im in the pink of health..so now I just try my best to blame it all on anxiety..I do notice heightend sensations and discomforts during menses..how does your chest pain feel like?

    My anxiety is worse too before my period. Sometimes i feel like crap 2weeks before. I get sweaty and cold palms and feet, burning sensation in my skin, dizziness and just feeling overall panicky. I dread having my period every month because of that. 😞
