Shaky legs, taken water, blood pressure raised, running out of breathe, taken atenolol and lorazepam. Menopause?

Yesterday I had shakes in my legs for a few hours, shakes lasted for 15 - 30 min then paused for a minute, then started again, it lasted around 3 hours, I had to drink water all the time during the episodes. My blood pressure raised 160/100 when it started: I took 1 atenolol + 1/2 0.5 lorazepam as my doctor recommended, but it did not stop the shakes or affected my condition. My doctor thought I had panic attacks but i do not feel any fear or any panic: just shaking with high blood pressure and running out of breath .. I had a 30 km bike ride that day and was dining with my family when it started. Can it be related to menopause? I am 52, fit. I am traveling abroad now and do not have any medical help available

Your condition almost explains the situation of a peri-menopausal condition except for the part of shaky legs. Though this could be caused by the raised blood pressure.Are you on blood pressure medication? When did you attain menopause?These answers can help to reach a conclusion.
Hope the question suits you? Awaiting your reply.

Thanking you
