Butterflies

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi just wondering if anyone experiences butterflies in the tummy?? I constantly feel anxious plus all the normal menopause symptoms!! When I do stop stressing they do go!! I have had various blood tests which are all normal!! I have just bought a lady care the magnet you place in your underware to see if this helps!! Has anyone else used this??? If this fails I feel I my need HRT!!! It’s hard as the doctors can’t tell you how long this will go on for!!! Really upsetting as I don’t feel like eating!! Love to hear from any ladies that experience stomach issues or any advice about HRT xx 😘

    All part of anxiety, it’s an awful feeling and sometimes it feels like nervous energy that will never stop ... 

    BUT 

    Butterflies to the Rescue — Stomach butterflies are associated with the body's fight-or-flight response. ... At the same time, the nervous system stimulates the adrenal glands, which release hormones including adrenaline and cortisol that can turn the body into a tense, sweaty mess .

      Hi carol, it’s awful every morning at the moment I’m waking up with really bad reflux, stomach very tender. Dr changed my tablets on Friday so hoping they will kick in soon. I know it gets worse when my anxiety flares up, it’s a no win situation at the moment. I’m on hrt patches which help with most symptoms but not these ones x

      Hi Karen i have been having acid reflux too really bad as soon as i wake up. Its like something is in my chest and i cant seem to bring up enough air. The discomfort feeling kinds of moves around in my chest with alot of bloating. I dont have an appetite , i have to force myself to eat in the morning. Are these symptoms any similar to yours?

    Hi yes this is one of many symptoms the anxiety, I found I had this post menopause. Just there all the time with the hot sweats. I have heard the lady care magnet works with some ladies , The only thing that has worked for me Is HRT. Like you I didn't feel like eating I lost weight no appetite at all. I felt I had no quality of life. I won't look back quality of life is so important  confused

    I have such bad anxiety.  The minute I wake up I get that sick feeling in my stomach (butterflies).

    My mind just doesn't shut off and I dread starting the day, again.
