My doctor says I am suffering from anxiety. I get shortness of breath and he is reluctant to prescribe me medication as it can make my breathing worse. I do not want to take prescription medicationanyway. More recently I am worrying a lot more, crying more, waking up more than five times during the night and do not want to interact with people.I had a hysterectomy at 45. I am now 48 and do not take HRT. I only take Sage tablets for hot flushes. I feel worse since operation and only half the person I used to be. Is there anything I could try as I don't want to feel like this?
