Has anyone struggled with panic attacks? Is anxiety/panic linked to PCOS?

I've struggled with anxiety for years. It got considerably better when I cut out caffeine, but when my cycle pushes the hormones more out of balance than they already are the anxiety can become overwhelming.

I used to struggle with anxiety badly. Mood swings can be really bad with PCOS - it's crazy what hormones can make you feel. I've been exercising a lot and it seems to help with anxiety / depression.

I have depression and anxiety, not sure if its because I have PCOS, buy I do get panic attacks a lot and its horrible. Feeling drained after and having a hard time trying to continue with everyday life is exhausting.

Yes!!! Ugh!!! So bad! My blood pressure goes through the roof and my heart rate goes up to 155!! I don't consider them panic attacks, because I have those as well, and they feel different to me. These other "cardiovascular episodes" just feel like I've been given a shot of adrenaline. Like it's just physiological, I'm not thinking about anything bad or worried. I'm on beta blockers for those. But the panic attacks I'm on SSRIs for. Keeps me sane! ;)
