Post meno panic attack

Posted , 11 users are following.

I am 55 and 5 years post. I have been anxious for a while now, with bouts of health anxiety, very melancholy, angry, dwelling on the negative, etc which resulted in a lovely panic attack last night...the kind I haven't had in years, the kind that had me pacing out on my lawn in bare feet thinking maybe I needed to call an ambulance. Gosh, I thought this would be over by now 😞😞

    I am so sorry you are dealing with this too. I had to comment because I thought I was the only one who paces in the yard without any shoes. I have been there...MANY times. You are not alone. xoxo

    Hi Suzanne, I am 58, post meno for 2 years, gone through a lot of health scares, ovaries, breast, heart, liver. A year ago, when anxiety sets in, I am always taken to ER because my BP goes high and I get extra heart beat. Last Xmas & NY I was a walking zombie, for another heath scare (waiting for the result of liver mri).

    I was on xanax for a while to help me sleep. Blissful sleep for 1 to 2 nights, then back to reality. I was also on so many supplements and medications the side effects were terrible. I was told to take tofu, only later to find out it hasten the grow of breast tumours. I was told turmeric is good, only to find out it can be toxic to liver. There is no winning. Then one day, somebody gave me a book called AWAKEN THE HEALER IN ME, from that day on, I stopped all medications and supplements, except concor Amlo for my BP. I got rid of unhealthy food and alcohol and started meditating, excercising and studying the bible. Now at 10.30 pm, after thanking God and doing my one to one with Him, I surrender all to His mighty power of healing, I give him all my trust, then its lights off for me. I learned to manage my thoughts. I run my favourite verse on my head and off to blissful sleep. I still wake up in the middle of the night, hot flushes and toilet run, but then I go back to sleep, close my eyes, thank the Lord, and sleep some more.

    I can say now, yes, trully, God is my strength and my refuge. He is our ultimate healer if we learn to trust in Him.

    God Bless us all.

      I Love your post! TRULY God is our healer. I noticed taking a lot of supplements had me feeling all weird. I have lessen my intake of supplements and I'm slowly coming off the BP medication. I too pray and trust GOD and I try not to let menopause get me. It really gets hard at times but I start thinking in my head "It's a life change in my body and it will pass". I have no other choice but to know that this too shall pass. I LOVE this forum and I LOVE you ladies! We are going to take control... NOT menopause taking control. X

    I am sorry you are feeling this way. I have bouts of anxiety and panic. I hate the feeling of not being in control. I just pray and think this too shall pass. I Have tried several different things for my anxiety, but it all seems to make me feel worse. Now, I just try to ride it out. It eventually passes. Hoping we all start feeling better soon.
