    I am 49 and suffering from nocturnal anxiety attacks for a few months which drives me crazy. Very irritable and lack concentration. Blood test shown I am peri menopausal. Dr suggested HRT treatment. Wonder if there is something herbal out there to help me instead.

      Hi Glori Falling oestrogen can affect the blood pressure and trigger anxiety so these are common symptoms. However, high blood pressure does need monitoring so it is best to get it checked by your doctor as well.
