There are many women who are not suffering from menopause who are experiencing panic attacks as well as the ones who are. This is because we as women process all of the issues of life much differently then men.
However, women who are perimenopause or menopause experienced an increase in their panic attacks. Simply because their hormones are imbalanced. With this type of imbalance you are more vulnerability to the panic attacks. Perhaps there may be some circumstances that are causing you to react to them very different and you build up a fear of thinking that something is going to happen but, in fact it is a build up that you have put in your mind and your body reacts to that.
The most common symptoms of a panic attack
- Racing heart beat
- Breathing difficulties
- Unusual intense energy
- Rushes of energy
- Electric currents
- Hot prickly sensations
- Ice cold and tingly sensations
- And more…
*Hormones may catalyze panic attacks, they are not the direct cause for it.
Women who experience panic attacks during menopause
- Breathe rapidly and shallowly
- Hardly make use of the diaphragm in breathing
- Breathe with the muscles of the chest,neck and shoulders
Understanding what you are going through during your menopause when it comes to having panic attacks can help you in gaining some form of control. That could be reducing your stress level by just not worrying about things that don’t matter. Stop over thinking things, stop making things more complicated then what they are, learn to relax more, get out of your comfort zone, and change your environment. These are some steps to take without taking medicine. Taking medicine can create another problem that is not good. You can make a change with menopause and panic attacks naturally.
