does anyone experience upper body bloating with peri? I came off the pill last year and not had a period since. Could peri have been hidden by being on pill? Hot flushes day and night. Also can be freezing in night and within seconds so hot it's unbearable. I am 48 thank you

    I started with my symptoms 10 months ago with the peri, and suffered a lot of new happenings!!!!!!!. Settled down then re-occurred again with new symptoms and same one's occurring. Bloating yes I get that with my chest with acid reflux which I do suffer with aching shoulders /arms and terrible migranes ( again suffer since becoming peri occurng more frequently.) I'm 46 and last week my GP confirmed I was peri!!!!!. X

    It could be the pill because when you are on the pill it does make a person bloat and hold water talk to your doctor about this

      hi im not on the pill i havnt taken the pill since i was 16 it made me ill

      the dr did start me on a progesterone pill one a day to try to stop my bleeding but thats it. i only started that last week.

      iv been bloating for years. dr told me last week the bloating with ibs symptoms is because of the h pelori bacteria found in my stomach.

      aparently 75 percent of population have it and most dont know it or have symptoms. but symptoms are heart burn indigestion bloating feeling full gas ibs symptoms.

      but i have bloat in a diff way when i have a period i cam tell the diff. and since finishing my antibiotics for the bacteria im not geti g indigestion anymore or bloati g the same. i also sufferd bad breath and thats gone to

      so some with bloat could actualy have h pylori in there tummys.

      plus it wont help if you have that and also bloat with periods

    There are so many symptoms of perimenopause due to the shifts in hormones.   Bloating and other digestive complaints are common, along with the hot flashes and night sweats.   It really all is a sign of an imbalance.   There are great alternatives out there to help you balance your hormones and get you feeling like your old self. 

    My personal favorite is Femmenessence!

    Of course, bloat can be caused by food sensitivities, stress and other things as well.  So check those out.   A good probiotic is useful.  Peppermint and ginger can temporaily help but it won't finx the problem.
