ANXIETY!!! - Page 2

post #21 of 22

Chemical/nutritional/physiological totally!  I find I need really solid nutrition including plenty of high quality animal foods as well as B12, magnesium, and probiotics in order to manage my anxiety. I am so sorry you are going through all of this--but there is a light at the end of the tunnel even though you cannot see it now!  Keep looking!!

Anxiety can have its roots in the hormonal changes/hormonal imbalance related to menopause. According to this article, 

The link between hormonal imbalance and anxiety



The estrogen dominance common to perimenopause probably adds to this “anxiety response.” In a normal menstrual cycle, estrogen dominates at the beginning of the cycle, and progesterone rises in the second half. The progesterone has a calming, relaxing effect. But in perimenopause we have more cycles in which we don’t ovulate, so the progesterone level stays low. (Also see our article onirregular periods.) For some women, anxiety attacks are their major symptom of perimenopause.


Makes sense to me!!
