diane - December 4

yes it's normal! actually a lot of woman experience this during menopause not to mention anxiety which is also common among woman on menopause. Have you had your hormones tested? if not please do...

try paxil. i'm not sure if you can get this over the counter. but this has helped me with my anxiety and panic attack.

panic disorder is an intense fear or anxiety. this usually start without any warning and can last for hours. don't worry, it's not physical nor mental illness. it is treatable.


felicity - December 9

best way to treat this kind of disorder is to control their tendency to breath shallowly and rapidly. medications may be a help or hindrance so it is very
important that a medical doctor should always manage a patient's medications.

I have had a few panic attacks since. it all started when menopause approaches. but i try to catch it early.the only advice i could give is to breath diaphragmatically at least three times. i know it is hard but this surely helps.

i have been totally off medication now and it's been months. the only thing that sort of worked for me was the diaphragmatic breathing. i think you should try it too.

panic attacks should be normal during menopause. i'm suffering from it too and i've known a lot of people who is facing the same problem. learn to have self control and relax. it doesn't need to be treated unless it's severe.

panic attack strikes almost suddenly without any warning signs. this usually happens if you don't breath properly. meaning you breath about as twice as we normally breath.
