Had no idea what I was in for.

Hello everyone!  I am new to this forum and so glad I found it while on this journey of ups and downs .  I am one month away from being 49 and just had my first period since last October and boy was it a doozy!

 Doozy in the emotional sense. Two days after my period was over I had the most intense anxiety panic combo attack in the shower,  has anyone else experienced this ???

 I also have been having intermittent anxiety all throughout the day and I wake up with anxiety every morning,  I am guessing it’s because I went 3 1/2 months without having a period And all my levels of hormones are a bit off.  Has anyone else experienced this ?  I would surely appreciate any input!

 Hope you all have a wonderful day!

    Unfortunately panic attacks are the norm during peri/ and menopause. I'm at work right now listening to music to soothe depression.

    Hi Kellie, going through the same thing, nonstop anxiety. I’m 51 and had 1 period since October as well. I’ve had anxiety on and off for years but this is different. I did go on a low dose of Zoloft which helped me a lot about 4 years ago. I only took them for 5 months and didn’t have any issues until this happened rolleyes going back to the doctor to get my levels checked again. Not sure if I want to do hrt or antidepressants since most of my symptoms are panic attacks and anxiety
