Perimenopause Anxiety Anyone?



Does anyone have anxiety that has come on since being perimenopausal? I am 51 and have recently changed from pill to patch so was wondering if it’s this. I have never experienced anything like this so it’s a big and bad surprise!

Thanks in advance

Hello, am 49 and peri menopausal but my only symptoms so far are hot flushes. Great for the winter but awful in summer. I think it affects people in different ways. Am on HRT gel which is meant to be kinder. Maybe speak to your GP about the different options. I’ve never dealt with anxiety, though everyone feels anxious at some point in there lives. If there’s a clear link to menopause or HRT patch, I’d def seek medical advice. Hope it’s resolved soon🙂

Oh I know the feeling of the muscle pain and tendonitis. You sound very similar to me. Have you tried a good CBD oil? It’s really helped me with my pain. Hope you feel better soon. Xx
