Menopause Anxiety Anyone?

It appears I'm postmenopausal. FHS test went from 24 last year to 82 this year! Wow do I feel like I'm on a rollercoaster ride!

Hot, nauseous, chest pain, stiff neck, ear pain & eye pressure. Make it stop!

I thought Postmenopausal meant menopause was over. "Post" I thought meant "after." No, I found it can last 10 years! Up to 10 years of insomnia?!?

My question for the pros:

Anyone have anxiety with loss of estrogen? Is THIS TRUE ?!?

Can anxiety cause your neck to tighten and choking ?

Can it create a vibrating feeling in your chest & neck for hours on end? Mostly after dinner- until early morning?

Can a panic attack awake you multiple times? (usually when you just fell sound asleep!)

I just need reassurance. The ER doesn't want to see me anymore...

I'm not sure about menopause things being a man but anxiety wise, yes to everything. Anxiety is terrible and even though you may not feel anxious, it's there because we adjust to the feeling, it can make your life a misery.

Try some magnesium oil, it eases anxiety and regulates the body plus it promotes sleep.

Good luck.


This is a HUGE Help! Thank you. I really thought/ think I'm dying! You wouldn't have upper right side "rib" pain?

I what about jaw pain & inner ear shooting pain?

I take a magnesium supplement. Could you tell me more about the oil? And can I use it on my neck or near my face?


Magnesium supplements orally are a very poor source and generally are oxide based ( check ingredients ). Anxiety can make many things bother you, neck pain, jaw pain, any muscles really.

Magnesium oil is better absorbed and you can use it anywhere, you can see many videos on YouTube about it and available from Amazon or any health shop.


wow! I did go & look at my suppliment. I thought I had found a good one. (A combination with Silica. Gluten- free and no soy which is important to me.) I really liked magnesium glycinate, but found that it can create anxiety in some when most find glycinate helpful for a good night's sleep. But for me, anxiety. Benadryl and Melatonin are the same: like a pot of coffee. Not what you want before bed...


Mag glycinate is glycine and lysine with magnesium. Glycine is a muscle relaxant which with magnesium can make some anxious because it relaxes a person alot and it makes them uneasy, as well as making your stomach upset. But oil is transdermal, which doesn't upset anything because you just spray on the skin and rub it in, though it does have more of a detoxification effect at first which is why you start off low. I'd imagine a hormonal woman being full of toxins with a huge shift in one's self. Try some, a good brand is Ancient Minerals.


I am overwhelmed by your kindness! Thank you so much!

I do believe I'm in this mess because of toxins. I'm also following fatty liver foundation. Wayne's diet for my liver has been most helpful. A first step forward. I was frozen in fear of dying. No one would believe the tightness & pain in my neck. And once I was labeled menopausal & anxiety disorder- well, I was convinced even more I'm going to suffer a stroke because no doctor will test further.

My mind immediately went back to my gallbladder symptoms 15 years ago. It took 3 1/2 years to diagnose because no stones, but sludge. Rib pain, right side neck & shoulder pain with nausea and anxiety were my symptoms.

The past few years have been bizarre.

I had been taking Nexium for 3 1/2 years & trying my hardest to explain to doctors how awful this prescription is to my health. And a costly error on my part. I was taking turmeric with black pepper extract for joint pain ( with the Nexium.)

I sure hope I can get my message out:

Never take a turmeric suppliment with black pepper extract.

Never take both Nexium and turmeric together.

Seriously, Nexium causes B12 and magniseum deficiency. So much so, Nexium wants to add magnesium to it's formula to address the issue.

So, now, after the fact, I can see I needed magnesium. Never was my body craving large doses of turmeric!

I feel like you opened a door for me today. Thank you so much!

Where would I find your story?


Quick question. It looks like it it sold with MSM also. Do I buy the spay oil? With or without MSM?


Is this from Amazon ? It's upto you, MSM is beneficial for joint pain. it's down to cost, if you can buy the best then do it. With or without buy ancient minerals !.


Well magnesium helps, oil is great for fatty liver too and great for avoiding osteoporosis because without magnesium , calcuim and D3 can not get into the bone so settled on the outside of the bone and calcification occurs and one of the main menopausal outcomes is osteoporosis !!.

It really is a solve it all !!

It also breaks down kidney stones, regulates mood, BP, cholesterol, estrogen and testosteron levels etc.

Buy a good brand oil, a trusted brand like Ancient Minerals. Start with 1 spray no matter what the bottle says, as detoxification is the first phase with oil. You may feel worse before you feel better, but once you get past the detoxification and it starts to get into the cell you will feel calmer, energised, sleep better etc, the list goes on !!!.

If I can help then I will, my story isn't really important right now, you're the one seeking help :-)

I just can't believe how much a "stranger" helped me today! I was putting pieces together slowly on my own...

But you opened the door for me today. (I stopped trying to squeeze though the kitchen window, and ran through that door you're holding open for me today! )

What a gentleman!

Thanks again!

I'll let you know my results soon. So excited!
