Tightness in my chest during period

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello

Hope someone can help me. I’m a 38 years old and I think I’m going through premenopausal. My dr. Thinks I’m too young but I have all the symptoms that I read. I have also been having chest tightness to the point I feel like I’m lacking oxygen. I have had my heart tested and it’s not my heart. I do suffer with anxiety but it is controlled by meds.  Does anyone else lone else get this ?   I have notice the last menstral periods I have had this tightness. It’s been 5 years now and now I’m noticing it to come on with my period. 

Please help 

Thank you

    Might be worth getting more detailed hormone tests done. Anxiety also can cause all sorts of symptoms. I hope you find a solution.

    I do not have chest pain, but the palpitations are just as bad. I hope you get better Maryann.

    I also suffer anxiety bad and find it hard to breath. I have night sweat but less than before and hot flushes, did have weak bladder, less appetite, general slowing down. I went to the docs. They sent me for a blood test to make sure I'm not anaemic and thyroid. Had concerns for a while due to tight bloated tummy every day. Hope it nothing more serious
