    Panic attacks and anxiety...

    how old are you?

    Have you had this before? I can only say that for almost certain its your hormones, that could be adrenals..thyroid, or simply your estrogen bouncing around.

    Its part of this time in our lives when things start to get funky.

    It for sure messes with our minds..

    i understand and so do so many more of us..

    xoxo

    sleep deprivation or insomnia can make for a very poor nervous system to...heightening stress and anxiety levels..i was sleeping alternate nights last year..thank god im back to normal now...hope all this info helps...meno destroys sleep which i think is a major factor to ongoing anxiety symptoms 💕

    morning jane well i feel for you i have been like this every night for 3 months and this morn was the worse ever to the point my husband told me i needed to be checked out so we rang for an ambulance which took over an hour to arrive but both guys were so nice and to put my mind at rest done a 12 lead ecg and even though id had palpitations, hot sweats,and shaking since 2.30 and it was now 5am all was fine with my heart just my bp was sky high which i do have a problem with for a while now , the paramedics did say its more likely to be menopause and high anxiety but these symptoms are every night about 2/3am and last for over an hour and leave me cold shaking and needing sleep and are very frightening and have only started with peri never had this before so like so many ladies on ere its all bloody hormones or should i say lack of so good luck in feeling well soon big hugs to you

    I have anxiety and yes I feel 'unsettled' here and there. But someone was telling me yesterday about eating foods that might help with anxiety. Don't know BUT I'm going to start looking into it. She was telling me about a smoothie with some kind of cherries in it among other things that are good for you.. It worth a shot.
