    Oh yes Maria, that's anxiety for sure I get that too, if someone says anything to do with funeral or hospital or someone has a sickness it all starts for me anxiety kicks in big time!! Even just watching the news can bring on my anxiety, and then takes a little while to settle back down.. If you don't remove yourself from the situation or get your mind onto something else all together, it will esculate into a panic attack, hard to breathe, awful times but we'll get through.. Take care ?

      yes,  I get this all the time.  I can't listen to any bad news etc.  i started using an app for meditation  3 minutes of listening to this guy talk has made a huge difference.. don't think i can mention the name of the app, but I find it so relaxing  It teaches you how to breathe through anxious moments.  helps with this particular symptom anyway,  relaxing is so important.

      Yes I agree relaxation is very important, and I do listen to a lot of different meditation apps as well.. Maybe even the one your thinking of. Probably can't mention the name, so if you have a chance pm me the name and I will look him up, thanks and take care ?

    Yes I get the same as you Maria, I babble at times and other times quiet as a mouse, I also have enhanced sense of smell, I notice smells that sent there very weird, I also have the same song going round in my head for hours, the anxiety is the worst symptom for me x

      I just got to where I can wear perfume again. I used to wear it everyday and had bottles and bottles of it. Then one day I couldn't stand the smell of any perfume. This went on for about a year. Now I can wear it again. Menopause is something isn't It? Like a crazy merry go round of symtoms.

    Hi Maria,

    I am in menopause and although I’ve never really had a lot of hot flashes with sweating, I do get hot flashes where my entire body feels like it’s about 10 degrees above normal and this can last anywhere from 30 seconds to 30 min.  I don’t have them as frequently as I used to get them and even when I did get them it seemed like they would mostly occur during the night and I wouldn’t sleep well that night.  When this happens It is almost always followed by being very wiped out and low energy the next day.  When I get them during the day they are almost always triggered by anxiety, excitement and....unfortunately...chocolate.  I hopes this helps.🙂

    Oh yes. I can't listen to anything about death or sickness. Sets me off to worry about everything and and everybody. Glad to know I'm not alone.
