Yesterday i suffered a panic attck several hours before my cycle. It was so scarey that I ended up in the er. There they ran neck xrays ekg and an mri. I asked the doctor could this be related with my cycle since this has happended the last 3 cycles. He didnt know. Any suggestions of where I should go. The pannic attacks are getting much worse with every cycle. thanks

I use to have horrible PMS like symptoms every month, and now realize that I also suffered with alot of anxiety with it too. I am wondering though if they checked your thyroid? Sometimes thyroid issues can mimic anxiety. Just some food for thought.

And welcome to the forum by the way!

Morning swilson,

I have seen topics re this very same subject on the site and have posted links to a couple of the previous threads. From what members have posted hormones play a role in Panic attacks.

Please research the past posts.
