    Yes... The past couple months around my period I get this feeling for a day or two and I believe I felt it more at night!! It's under my left breast. Some people mention heart palps so I guess that's what it was due to this drop in Estrogen.

    Hi Marisol

    Yes I have experienced the same, especially at night and worse if i lay on my side. The only thing I have had to change drastically during menopause has been my diet . I have cut out all sugar and bad carbs such as pasta, bread ect. Sugar and carbs will keep you bloated. I also cut out all dairy and went on to plant based milks . I eat almost a vegan diet but i do still have fish on occasion. Changing what I eat has made a huge difference . No more bloating and no palpitations also flushes have almost gone. If I can be of any more help let me know.

    Good luck.

    P.S Try not to eat anything heavy before bed .

    I am sorry you're having a hard time, we all know how scary these crazy symptoms can be!

    I totally agree with scotland005 about watching your diet closely. It is making a difference with my symptoms like bloating, palps, and flashes. I've just gotten back to working up a sweat on the treadmill n trail, when weather permits. That's helping, too. Try everything til you hit upon what works for you, hon!

    In reply to Kelly

    yes a huge difference kelly .i have gone back down to the dress size i was before. I am a personal trainer Kelly so i do also do lot of exercise but was still getting thick around middle, boobs ect. So started to keep a food diary and as soon as I ate something that made my symptoms worse I marked it down.

    That's when I saw a pattern with things with high sugar content. Chocolate, cakes, ect also pasta. Spicy food, coffee and alcohol made my reflux worse and tomato.

    since changing my diet i have more energy dont feel sluggish and have lost over a stone in weight. No more night sweats also.

    should day dairy was a huge problem as well.

    let me know if I can help anymore.

    Hi Mariso

    Yes our bodies are changing so much there is no way i can eat waht i used to, and yes you feel exhausted and out of breath when bloated. I promise you if you change your diet you will feel like a new person. I take magnesium, folic acid and vit B12 . As i eat almost a vegan diet I take B12 and magnesium and folic acid because i was loosing hair . But please I dont know if you are on any medication so please check before you start taking any vitamins. Also drink plenty water .

    Good luck and keep me posted on how you get on .

    sRegards
