Hormones and anxiety

I suffer with anxiety which in the last few years (I'm 41) has got worse. As have my periods and pms. I think I'm peri menopausal but GP just blames it all on anxiety. Anyway...I've noticed that I get more anxious, plus have palpitations, dizzy spells etc immediately after I ovulate. I then feel better for a few days until a couple of days before period, then I feel terrible for a few days just as period starts and while on period. Then I feel better in the lead up to and around ovulation before I crash again after. Anyone else experience this pattern? I've looked up hormone cycle charts and this pattern seems to fit with when hormones are lowest. Or I could just be over thinking it!
