Good day

fluctuations in hormones causes symptoms ranging from physical symptoms to mental and emotional symptoms.
For anxiety the relative increase in estrogen to progesterone might also be contributing to symptoms. Avoid red meat, stimulants like coffee and sugar and diary products one week before your period. Are you taking a high enough dosage of the magnesium to have an effect.

Kind regards
