Hi Ladies... Looking for some much needed assurance. I have suffered from night sweats off and on for the last 2 years. For the past week I have been waking every night anywhere between 10-2. It either starts with a hotflash first and then the burning starts or vice versa. Only sleeping and average of maybe 4 hours off and on through the night. I have suffered from anxiety for 20 years and have started peri about 3 years. They symptoms change from time to time but this new one is throwing for i a full panic. I've had ekg, echo and stress and all are OK. I do take Xanax which used to help keep me asleep but now that doesn't seem to help. It virtually feels like a match has been lit in my upper chest which then brings on the major anxiety. Anyone else experience this. I work full time and am becoming a zombie. Today is the first day I called off as I just can't function on 2-3 hours of broken up sleep. Any advice or support would be greatly appreciated. This peri stuff is not for the faint hearted.
