    Hi there

    Welcome. You will find some lovely,helpful ladies on here. They have been a great help to me.

    Most ladies here have had or have crippling anxiety with peri. I had anxiety about 7 years ago but came back even worse a few months ago. You really think you are the only one with it when you are out and about. I am on HRT. Some symptoms have eased but I am seeing the doctor tomorrow to see if I need a higher dose. Take care xx

    Yep me also. I have a go appointment tomorrow. I am thinking mine might be down to my HRT. I took the patch off yesterday- had a slightly better nights sleep. Left it off until late morning by which time I was quite tearful! So took one of my HRT tablets that I used to take prior to Aprils new prescription of the patch. Still have slight palpatations/anxiety but nowhere near as bad!

    Hi Steff...welcome.

    Anxiety is my middle name now. Its the worst peri symptom i have. I probably spend 2 weeks of each month panicking.....its the worst feeling and it just comes out of nowhere for me.

    I do as much as I can when i feel ok so when it hits me I can hibernate.

      How old are you now Steff? I am 48 (49 in october).

      I started noticing things happening about 45 but last October it really kicked in. I am still fairly regular but every month is different.

      And my bloodtests show my hormones are normal. But I started getting bad hot sweats and moodswings. I have kept track of the moodswings and am bad the second week of my cycle and just before my period.

      Its scary thinking of how much worse it is going to get. At least you know you are not alone....i thought I was having a breakdown but when I read others posts on here it seems we are all having same/similar symptoms so we can't all be losing it lol

      I'm 45 soon , it all started a couple of years ago . I'm a little better than I was but I shake all day with the anxiety. I was spending all my time hibernating now I try to go out .The weeks are hard though as I don't drive and don't work. I live in a sleepy village .

      Hi Steff...that would be hard. When I feel anxious and home alone its easy to feel worse as your mind escalates everything. Sometimes its easier to work as it makes me get out and take my mind off the anxiety. I still have waves of panic sometimes but i get angry at it and think I am not giving into it. I know everyone talks about it but meditation really does help. I downloaded a couple of apps onto my phone. I had a really bad panic attack last week and it got me out of it. You are supposed to do it daily which I havent been doing. Give it a try. Take care x

      HI steff...i like one called Relax lite. If you go to your playstore on your mobile just search free meditation relaxation apps. I like this one as it goes for 20mins and his voice is relaxing. It takes practice though as my mind goes a hundred miles an hour especially when I am anxious. I am trying to do it everyday...not just when I feel bad smile
