    Yes, for sure! There is so much overlap! And, I had a hysterectomy two years ago (still have working ovaries), which just adds to the mystery because I never have any idea where I am or should be in my cycle. It's just chaos!

    Erin, one of the symptoms of the menopausal stage can be anxiety.
    I was surprised my GP didn't even mention this when I was being diagnosed with general anxiety.
    I'm wondering if GPs cover this at all in any of their practices.

    Nothing was mentioned to me either about anxiety, I had to do my own research, but back then mental health wasn’t in the headlines like it is now x

    It should be mentioned YNWA.
    Menopause is no easy ride.
    Changes in the body, hormones, monthly cycle all over the place, unexplained feelings and emotions. Changes to our appearance, the way we feel.
    I can't help thinking that some diagnoses of anxiety disorder are confused with the menopause.
    I mean literally, so many people have anxiety these days and I know full well it exists, but maybe the increase (in women) is partly, even wholly down to the menopause or it adds to it.
    Take those hot flushes and night sweats, anxiety or menopause? How can we tell the difference.
    Becoming tearful or anger rages. Hormone change?
    I don't understand why the menopause isn't put out there more, I mean, we all have to go through it.

    Exactly Carnation, I agree, although I did have anxiety way before the menopause but wasn’t sure if meno was complicating things.
    I remember right at the beginning I had to go see a gynaecologist for a few tests to make sure it was the menopause causing symptoms..(not anxiety) .....HE...turned to me and said it’s JUST the menopause, go home and enjoy it...

    What the heck was that supposed to mean and would he have said that if it was men that had to go through it....

    Not one word of explanation of what I could expect or not to be alarmed if this or that happens...
