Crazy stomach

Posted , 7 users are following.

Has anyone else started having problems with dairy since perimenopause began? I used to be able to eat anything and never have any problems, but now every time I eat cheese or drink milk my stomach starts grumbling, I get bloated and have gas. If anyone else experiences this I would love to know how they handle it 😊

    Hi Kim, yes I am now unable to drink milk and have trouble with some cheese goats cheese seems ok. I drank a glass of cows milk to see what would happen and I had the worst stomach pain and bloating. I had to go to bed it took hours to go away, so now I don’t touch it. I’ve switched to almond milk, since perimenopause there are loads of thinks I’ve had to swap, I think it’s very common x

    Hi Kim.. Oh yes and I've awful problems with wind and Nausea and developed ibs.. ... At times very bad.. Our gut slows down throug and we cannot process food the way we did before the change... Right now I'm one big windbag... If I didn't laugh, I'd cry... Keep an eye on your food intake and drink plenty of water... As much as you can... Ck

    Yep!! Can’t eat it without feeling all these issues but sometimes do it anyways lol.

    I notice when gas starts to build up I also get really strange “head” feelings.

    It drives me nuts.

    Not dairy, but beans and cabbage. I love hummus and coleslaw. But, I've had acid reflux since I was in my late 20's and menopause aggravates any ailment you have when you're younger.

    But I had some refried beans yesterday. I took some beano and I was fine.
