Does anxiety seem to affect women over 40 more
« on: June 12, 2011, 04:19:05 PM »
I have been reading on the Internet alot that anxiety tends to affect women who are peri menopausal pre menopausal and menopausal most I just dont know how much of this is believable, could this actually be caused by hormones? or at least some of it?

Yes for older woman anxiety can start but for many of them, they've had it all their life, just gets worse with menopause. Hormones play a HUGE factor in this for sure. I don't know any menopausal woman who didn't go through periods of anxiety ...

well I have been told I am peri menopausal but its just strange as to why a dr. wouldnt even think to throw that in with all the other circumstances as well,they just asked about home life major situations legal problems ect... it's like they want to almost blame the economy    for anxiety when there could be other things that come into play we are all different.
