      It's probiotics as a supplement. If I go off track I feel it immediatly. No mine isn't upper. One thing you'll find as you approach menopause is that you get a lot of food sensitivites. So you must beware of them.

      Maybe it's dairy, gluten, spices, alcohol, or preservatives (EEE products). You'll have to track them.

    Yes! I get so bloated that I feel like I did when I was pregnant. Even my breasts seem to swell to the point that my bra is tight and uncomfortable. It ususally passes after I have my montly but then it comes back after a week or so. I drink alot of water to try to reduce it which is what my doctor told me to do but it does not help
