Can anyone relate to a sort of shortness of breath feeling or maybe a feeling of not getting enough air all of the sudden. It almost comes out of nowhere. Is this peri related. Wow what a scary feeling! I do notice as I get closer to my period it tends to get worse

    Hi Kelly

    I can relate to that, and it's weird because I'm obviously breathing in and out but I'm concious of it. I have low iron which sometimes causes it, or it can be the anxiety with me because it's scary and it's hard to stop thinking about it. I don't think it's the peri as such but maybe made worse by anxiety for me. Good luck xx

      Thanks Sassy...yea for me the anxiety was always there. This whole Peri has put the anxiety at a new level and one I haven't quite mastered yet. Nice to know I'm not alone in this one

    This was one of my first symptoms four years ago but it’s gone now  thank goodness, I’m noticing a few of my symptoms are getting better, I don’t know if it’s because I’m not scared of them anymore or if my hormones are balancing out x

    In an anxiety perspective, yes. Totally. Take note of what os going on when it happens. Also where you are in your cycle. Mine happened with ovulation and menstruation. If nothing seems to make sense, ask your doctor smile

    Yes,can relate with all the other ladies. I don't know about hormones,but it's anxiety and being tense for me. Stress can do a number on your body!

    Yes!! I get this and it's flippin frightening.

    Apparently, perimenopause does cause shortness of breath and breathlessnes and all sorts of other weird symptoms connected to chest area.

    I now have an inhaler which I use as and when needed.

    Yes! Not often but definitely happens. A couple of times when I doze off, so I thought it was sleep apnea. But nope, thank the Lord. and no heart issues.

    Meno goofiness.

    I have noticed in hot humid environments such as my bathroom when I am having a hot shower,  in subway and busses full of people. It is very frightening....like lack of oxygen

    I think that I have noticed before my period and during my menstruation
