    Hi. I know how you feel. If it's not one thing it's something else when you are in menopause. I took Jays advice on here and now take vitamin B6 and B12 and I feel like a different person. If you are not already taking this I would recommend it. It worked within a week for me. I noticed my anxiety drastically drop and my energy levels are so much better. You can get them from Holland and Barrett under the name Busy B.

    Hope this helps.

    Helen.:-)

      my help me as well because I do get a little edgy like the week before my. Used to happen when I was a teenager and I really have a zero tolerance for it because I'm still have time for it so I'm going to try to b6 and b12 also take about 4,000 milligrams of vitamin C because of an upper respiratory problems that's in addition to this other stuff going on I just try not to let it stress me out too much that's another issue will have zero tolerance to be stressed out so I appreciate it going to Pauls it does suck but somebody told me also magnesium calcium in the sink combinations can help out as well as well as potassium is another one that helps with that too

      Hi helen

      So pleased B6 and B12 helps you too, its the best thing of all for me, no anxiety now  & believe me i have been put to the test these last 6 months and feel in control again like the old me. 

      I take other vits too but after a ten year natural peri and now 16 months post meno and just aged 50 .. Never felt better... 

      HRT not for me .. Too high risk for me and i just wanted to face peri head on and get on with my life.. Didnt personally want to postpone menopause with HRT for older years, get it out the way chick me 😃

      Good luck ladies

      Get the right magnesium. 

      Chelated bisglycinate best ( solgar) 

      Doesnt upset tum, i take this type now.

      Mag oxide and citrate has laxative effects and may make you run to the toilet each morning , so avoid them.

      Hi Donna,

      sorry you suffering ! It's really horrible isn't it sad I find it hard to believe that it's cause by the peri menopause to be honest, Anxiety is my worst symtom, and not sleeping a full eight hours ! No hot flushes ? I'm 48, do you take any thing to help ?

      sending you a big hug

      Hi Donna,

      sorry to to go on ! For me I have Anxiety about appointments ? I know it sounds nuts . . . I have no idea why ?? I end up cancelling them in the end just to stop the horrible un well feelings it brings 😢 I really don't understand it, I never used to be like this as I'm sure you didnt ? It's extremely lowering to feel this way and as I said I really struggle to believe this is just a peri symtom ? I mean in a way I hope so because otherwise I must have gone mad 😱 😢

      Hi Debbie never be sorry that we all are here for each other. You are not going nuts even though you may feel like it. Anxiety can be in different forms I guess thats the proper word. Mine is freaking out about different aches and pains and finances is a big one it's horrible so trust me you are not alone and you are not crazy. smile

      Your so welcome hang in there chick. I hope you are feeling better. I haven't had a normal period in a few months I barely bleed which I'm not complaining. I do however still get symptoms of it. I had to have a oblation done a couple of years ago. I am having a bad day of anxiety but trying to work my way through it. Hugs to you smile
