Hi all I am new here and am so glad to find this forum it brings me some comfort to read that I am not alone. I am 60 years old and have been post menopausal for 9 years now. I had the perimenopause from hell and thought that once I became post menopausal it would end ...unfortunately it didn't. I have done well over these last years with only occasional bouts of anxiety and of course hot flushes and gastro intestinal issues. I just turned sixty in July and these last few weeks my menopause symptoms have come back with a vengeance the anxiety is ruthless I feel like I must have every dreaded disease going which is ridiculous I know in my heart I am extemely healthy. The hot flushes are to the extreme and the shakiness and ringing in my ears is on and off. I feel like my face is on fire at times with the flushes. I am also experiencing muscle spasms in my back I guess due to the anxiety. I am trying to console myself with the fact that maybe this is the last big bang before everything settles down for good but have read that some women experience some of these symptoms well into their mid sixties or longer. I don't want to go back onto anxiety meds so I am looking for any suggestions on what to take that is natural for not only the anxiety but also the extreme flushes. I can deal with the inside shakiness that is only fleeting and few and far between but this anxiety and flushes has to go I can't believe I am dealing with all this once again. Any input would be much appreciated
