Hey I'm 46 and my symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks started when I turned 44 . I wasn't sure what was going on .all I know is I felt like I was dying . But I've noticed that it's all worse a week before my period hits and during my period . I don't know if it's normal or if I'm going thru the change but I wish there was something that would get rid of it all together . I get really dizzy and can't function. I want my life back . Does anyone know how I can get my life back ? Be greatly appreciated.
