    i have been bloating a lot. makes it hard to breathe

    a dietitian told me to take plant based digestive enzymes to help break down absorb food since i dont have a gallbladder. idk if coincidence but i ate one after lunch and i didnt bloat. time will tell. idk if something everyone can take? maybe ask your local supplement store? i got mine at sprouts

    Hi Carol. Sorry to hear you are suffering. Are you taking anything to help with your menopause symptoms? There are lots of helpful suggestions on here.  A good womens multivitamin is a good start, like meno pace.  I take meno serene.

    I would check with your doctor about the bloating and right sided pain, hopefully can put your mind at rest.

    Keep in touch

      Hi. I took menopace for a while but it didn't agree with me so stopped taking it.

      I do now take Centrum 50+ multivitamins and minerals and am considering trying Lepicol for my stomach issues

    I had unbearable pain in ride side by overy. i ended up im the hospital for a week in the worst pain ever. they ran a lot of tests and did endoscopy. all normal. they discharged me with IBS attack. idk weird to me. i was wondering if my overy failed amd it caused pain? its when all my peri symptoms started full force. looking back i have prob been in peri 1 yr or more when this happened. they also did ultrazound of my ovey. normal.

    hope u feel better
