hello im a 39 year old female and well i have been going through ***l and need some advise,
it started 3 months ago when i started feeling dizzy and felt like i couldnt breath properly now i have had panick attacks many years ago quite bad where i couldnt leave the house so my first thought was oh no they have come back again so now i am again too scared to leave the house i can get in the car to take kids to school but as for going into a shop well i just cant make myself which also means i cannot go to the doctors i have tried but my brain and body are telling me otherwise which i know is silly i know its all in my head i called my doctor and he said yes panick attacks come and get some medication but i dont like the anti anxiety tablets,
my mum told me she thinks it is an overactive thyroid as she had it and too my aunty,
a friend told me im going through menapause,
my symptoms are:

heart palpatations constantly
trouble swallowing
trembling hands
night sweats
feeling very hot in the face but no redness
constantly feel like im going to fall over very unbalanced on my feet

if anyone can help please i would really appreciate it,
