Bloating?

Posted , 5 users are following.

So this is all new to me. Among other health issues since January I also had hormone levels show pre menopause and my period was off late in January and February and very short for me. And then I got it again February 28 which seemed like a normal one for me. I thought the change was from being sick. But now I haven't gotten it since February 28 and no sign of it either. I did do a home pregnancy test which is negative. I have an OB appointment Thursday which I'm sure I will get a work up for it. But I have had symptoms that they weren't sure what was going on. I had other things going on to so not sure if this has caused the other problems or what. But I feel like I am blowing up like a balloon ! I am heavy but just the past 2 years or so my weight ha stained around my belly I never had this usually it's hip and butt and legs. But now my belly feels so bloated like I am going to busy. I almost feel a little nauseated and belch to help relieve it. Is this normal!?

    I absolutely have the bloating - no matter what I eat or how much I exercise it won't go away. And I have felt the nausea lately as well. I thought it might be due to the constipation which is also a new thing for me - but i started taking a fiber supplement to help and the bloat is still there.

    hi.  just saw this post but I now know that the bloating I had from age 40-46 was peri menopause.  I am 49 now and this has gone, but I had it for those amount of years, so with your age, it seems that it is common and is a sign of low progesterone which is the first hormone to start dropping off.  I only learned this recently.  I felt quite ok during those years apart from the bloat, weight gain, but felt normal -ish.  could cope with the slight changes in periods during this time too.   I hate the stage I'm at now, it's a horrible business.  Get it seen to now, whatever way you can.
