Help...trouble falling asleep
I've been having a strange thing happen upon falling asleep. I start falling asleep and then bolt up with my heart pounding, feeling a little dizzy and have to take several deep breaths...this goes on for about an hour before I finally fall asleep. Then I sleep fairly well all night and wake up peaceful in the morning...but it's getting to the point where I dread going to sleep. Had anyone every experienced this? I am 52 years old and just missed one period in June. I had two in July and one in August. I ovulated this week...I've had panic attacks and major anxiety since June. I know this is menopause related, but don't know how I am going to live like this...I use progesterone creams, drink soy shakes and take suppliments including magnesium. stopped drinking wine since this made the anxiety worse... what else can I do?
