Peri/menopause & anxiety attacks???
My dr & I are trying to figure out why my b/p (it was under control by meds) has skyrocketed & why I am having anxiety attacks - we're having a hard time getting my b/p down. I had blood work done today. Has anyone experience these symtoms???

Re: Peri/menopause & anxiety attacks???
Fairly common in peri to have problems with increase in BP, due to shifts in hormones and thyroid function. Anxiety, another biggy in peri. With anxiety comes higher BP. It's all connected thanks to changing hormones. Your doctor may have to change BP meds several times during peri to keep control of BP. Anxiety and high BP both listed in the 34 symptoms of menopause, and really there are more than 34 symptoms! Take care, Ann
