I have been recently diagnosed with "full blown" menopause, no peri, no warning. I am still a bit shell shocked. Original visit to Dr was weight loss and nausea. I have had problems sleeping and occasional night sweat/hot flash but didn't think much of it. Then I think I had a panic attack due to undiagnosed issues (cancer runs rampant in my family) so my Dr gave me anxiety meds. I only take half of the beta blocker when I feel worrisome/anxiety/irritable. Then blood work reveals this and I am going back and forth on meds and I am also seeing a counselor. She wants me to try Combi-patch and said it could help the anxiety as well as other symptoms. Any advice on anxiety vs menopause symptoms? Both happen the same time?
