PMS and Panic Attacks
For the last 2 years I have been getting panic attacks around the time of my period. The odd thing is I just realized it always happens about 4-6 days before my period (after spending so much money and having so many tests done). It got so bad that my doc sent me to a psychologist, who then sent me to a psychiatrist who had me write down when I get the panic attacks and they noticed the pattern. My shrinks tell me that its fairly common to get panic attacks before your period and I am just wondering if anybody else suffers from this and if there's anything that helps. I have ativan for the attacks but I would rather prevent the attacks from coming bc I am getting them at work sometimes. I am 33, 5'9 and 152lbs, no smoking some drinking and some acid reflux issues and it began happening at 31. Thanks!
