    Hi Crosado

    i also get this and when it first started happening it freaked me out, I used to end up having anxiety attacks, it used to come on suddenly and last about a minute, sometimes my eyes would go out of focus when it happened, I felt if I shut my eyes I would of gone.

    now when it happens I just tell my self it's another menopause symptom and it passes a lot quicker, I try not to focus on it, I believe that the anxiety made it worse, unfortunately I think it's something we are going to have to get used to xx

    Yes I have had this also. This cause me to have alot of anxiety !!! I was always afraid it would happen when driving or just anytime. It made me feel so out of control. I think it happens when the hormones are majorly shifting. I have not had it that bad the past year. Hopefully they don't come back. I try to relax and just think it will pass. But, It seriously sucks!!!
