Hi. My name is***** have over two decades of experience, and I'm online and available to help you today.

Yes. This could all be due to anxiety along with an overlap of perimenopausal symptoms.

So. What should you do?

1. Ask your GP or OB/GYN to check your hormone levels to see if you are going into menopause.

2. Ask about trying some anti anxiety medication.

I bet with treatment you will feel better soon.

Does this make sense to you?

Thank you
At the moment it is difficult to see my GP. Can I call asking for a telephone conversation for my symptoms?
Can you recommend any medication for anxiety?
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 16 days ago.

I would recommend Prozac and perhaps a short course of valium.
