Health Anxiety is not at all what you might suspect
Many of my female clients initially write to me to ask whether hormone imbalances which are present pre menstruation and during the menopause can influence anxiety and panic attacks. The simple answer is yes but it is a little more complicated than giving blame and living with it.
Yes, hormone imbalances during your period or the menopause can create the environment where you are more susceptible to anxiety disorders, but, not everyone develops anxiety or panic attacks so other factors must come into play.
You do not have to take medication or hormone supplements in order to eliminate the anxiety or panic attacks!
Although hormones may be the catalyst for your anxiety or panic attacks, they aren't the cause and certainly doesn't mean that you have to live with your symptoms. Anxiety and panic attacks are created by a small organ in the brain called the Amygdala which is responsible for the anxiety reaction, even when hormone imbalances during menstruation or the menopause may have 'sparked' the initial problem, you can quickly eliminate them again.
The Amygdala becomes 're-set' at a higher than normal level creating anxiety and panic attacks.
Anxiety and panic attacks are not a symptom of the menopause or of hormone fluctuations, they can be exacerbated by hormone issues but anxiety disorders are entirely separate.
They may be the initial catalyst for the anxiety and panic attacks but they do not CAUSE those conditions.
Rather like a person who takes a drug, experiences a panic attack and then thinks that they have permanently changed their brain chemistry... it just isn't true.
Anxiety and panic attacks need very little coaxing to get started. Once sparked, they are self perpetuating.
By correcting the imbalance in the Amygdala anxiety levels are returned to normal. This won't, of course, affect your hormone imbalance but it will take away the anxiety and panic attacks making the situation a whole lot more comfortable and less distressing.
