Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hi there! I am hoping to be of some assistance to you---- are you possibly going into menopause? Hormones can cause all kinds of havoc at this time of life; heart palpitations, anxiety, emotional issues... I am wondering if you have had your levels of hormone analyzed to see if this is a possibility? Otherwise, learning some new ways to try to control the anxiety through breathing & relaxation exercises may be helpful, as is getting enough physical exercise to raise your levels of endorphins and serotonin in your body. Here is a link to some simple relaxation techniques: http://helpguide.org/mental/stress_relief_meditation_yoga_relaxation.htm... and you may consider checking out youtube.com for some guided relaxation exercises, as well...
The saying goes that "all we have to fear is fear itself", and our thoughts have a big impact on how our bodies react. Keep your thoughts as positive as possible, reassure yourself that the feeling of anxiety is temporary and will pass... and you can work through this and find peace and calm. I will end here, and if you have further questions or information to share, this conversation will remain in the "my questions" tab at the top of your screen so you can re-access it at anytime. Thank you for your question, and for using the site! Take good care and be well!!
