Panic attacks and anxiety are all controlled by our Autonomic nervous system. It’s our brain that sends signals to our ANS and so this is why cognitive behavioural therapy is often recommended for anxiety disorders. Menopause-related anxiety and panic attacks are different from anxiety disorders or panic disorders because they are caused by depleting hormones affecting the autonomic nervous system.
Despite the fact that all women will go through menopause in their lifetimes, it’s still not as openly discussed as we would like it to be! Menopause is a natural process and nothing to be ashamed of, sharing stories is one of the best ways to open up a discussion and get rid of some of the taboo that often surrounds the topic.
Are you stuck in the blues and looking for a way out? Low moods can strike at any time. You can wake up feeling low or you can wake up feeling great and by the end of the day, everything has changed. When you add perimenopause and menopause into the mix, the constant changing of hormones can have a real impact. Estrogen can increase serotonin and endorphins which boost your mood. So when estrogen is depleted it makes sense that you would start feeling lower.
