Yes, it is very typical for panic and anxiety to worsen around that time of the month. My symptoms always get more intense right before and during my cycle. Just remember it is temporary or once your hormones settle back down you'll be fine.
I have seen topics re this very same subject recently on the site too. I agree from what members have posted hormones play a role in Panic attacks.
Please research the past posts. J
Sounds like you have found a lot of help with the hormone shots, Brandy. I am so glad you are feeling better.
The sharing you have done here is wonderful and very supportive.
Thank you for being so forthright and generous in your posts.
I am so glad you found someone near you that can help you and understand what you are going through. Its really hard for other people to understand it if they don't go through it. I can't say that my panic attacks have gotten worse, actually it has been better. Now I am suffering from depression and I don't know why. I don't take anything but i'm due to go to the doc next week. I hate the way I feel sometimes and thers nothing I can do about it. I also have the crying spells. I just cry and cry and don't know why i'm crying. Sometimes I feel like i;m not here or wonder why I'm here. Very weird feeling. Today was a bad day for depression. I try to handle it myself because I really can't tolerate the meds. I wish I knew how to fight it and make it go away. I also pray all the time for god to heal me from these feelings. My panic attacks are vey very mild not bad at all. When I fell them coming on I just take a few deep breaths and it passes me. But I don't know how to deal with this feeling of depression. I just don't understand it, I have a normal happy life and I don't get why I feel so depressed. in some odd way I still think that its a hormone thing going wrong. Some kind of inbalance. I don't know why but I still believe that. Well sry i'm rambling on. I hope you are feeling better. If you don't mind me asking where are you from?? I live in Louisiana.
Well write back soon
Hey Brandy. To answer your question about death? Yes I think about it all the time. I am so scared something is going to happen to me. GOD says you are not suppose to be scared to die. But I am. I am 30 and I ain't ready to go yet. I want to grow old and see my grandchildren. I don't know why these panick attacks make you think like that. Yesturday I had a moni panic attack. I was on the couch, and I had been having a sharp pain in my chest on and off all day. i had to keep in my mind, that I have already had lab work done, and I'm fine. But it wasn't a constant pain. Just every now and then. When I would feel it I would burp. So I'm guessing its trapped gas. I am drinking a coke right now, which I don't drink coke, and sitting here in the lab that I run here at the hospital (outpatient lab) just burping away. I am having to explain to my patients, sorry for the outburst, but I've got gas somewhere, and I'm trying to get rid of it.They laugh at me. LOL!!! The panic attack only lasted about 2 minutes and it was over. Not a very bad one. Really just got real hot. Do you ever feel dizzy when you aren't having the attacks? Somedays I feel dizzy all the time. I've had ct scans, and everythings fine. I feel kinda like you do though. I feel like sometimes I am going crazy. Well better go for now. Will werite again later. Hope you have a great day. Think positive!
