I'm 44. My aunt-in-law passed away end of May, and I was caring for her until she went to hospice, and have been running between her and my parents-in-law's house taking care of their needs. I bring this up because about 8 months ago I started to have anxiety almost all day and bouts of panic attacks. I only had anxiety like this once before on Levothyroxine, I went off it and have not taken anything since October. Gradually I have started to feel like I am losing my mind. Fearing fear, feeling drops in my stomach, foggy-headed, forgetful. Irritable beyond normal feelings- red hot irritation. Dark thoughts. I scare myself. I am normally laid back and compassionate. The anxiety has become somewhat more manageable, but the thoughts are not what I want in my head and scare me. PMS is insane, I become worse emotionally than I used to be. Last month I spotted before my period and then it was normal. This period was a week early exactly with cramping over a week before starting for 3-4 days. I asked the doc in October about Peri and she said I was too young. My therapist thinks its Perimenopause, and possibly sleep apnea. Unfortunately I can't get anyone to look at me until end of August. Any thoughts?
