Digestion issues!!

Posted , 8 users are following.

Oh my god this menopause is a living nightmare!!! I have tried changing up my diet but nothing works!! Im not lactose intolerant and i dont have celiac disease or ibs....i was tested. But every damn time i eat all day long my gut and stomach make very loud audible gurgling and groaning sounds....even on an empty or full stomach!! It comes with feelings of nausea or being both nauseous and supposedly a little hungry all at the same time! Grrrr i dont have diarrhea but i do struggle with only mild constipation, not bad enough for any type of meds.. Does anyone else struggle with this on a daily basis?

    Hello Brandy, sorry if I asked you this before, do you take a probiotic? Indigestion and stomach issues unfortunately are part of this. All of our health does start in our “Gut”… There is also a product that is in many many things it’s called Carregenan (might be spelled wrong) it’s in yogurt, coffee creamers, ice cream etc… it’s made to make things creamy, and it has a terrible effect on the body. I realized during this journey, which has been many many years, our body just can’t tolerate anything anymore that isn’t good for it. I know it’s a roller coaster 😉 XO

      Actually i do eat stuff with carregenan in it so maybe that is it. I know i cant have aspartame or sorbitol or xyletol they all kill me!!! So i cant chew gum, I havent chewed gum in years and i hate it! I love gum. I havent taken probiotics cause i keep seeing conflicting reports on them so to be honest im afraid it will cause more harm than good. I feel like i cant win for losing.

      hi brandy - i feel your pain, i can eat something that i have always eaten & get a total random stomach ache from it - i think Lisa is right, our bodies just cant process food the same way anymore - i do religiously take apple cider vinegar in capsule form - it might be all in my head, but it has seemed to calm my digestion issues a bit, at least my gerd issue - i also love to eat sauerkraut & a very good kefir, organic with no sugar in it - days when my bloating/gas was off the charts i took activated charcoal capsules & that seemed to help - its all a lot of fun...NOT!

      hi Brandy, I cant chew gum either, for years it’s made me sick. The Caragenan really makes my body ache also, it’s not just that it upsets the stomach. there was an article several years ago and Chicago Suntimes had it, that’s how bad it is. The FDA is useless and only supports garbage that makes us sick, as long as they get a kickback, they don’t care about anyone’s health. I’ve taken a probiotic for years and all my friends do, there’s no harm it can do, it’s a lifesaver for me.... have a beautiful day 😃

      I forgot to say... those other three I can’t eat either. A couple years ago we were out to lunch... I had several ice teas...in each one ...which had to be like 12 ounces, I know that sounds like a lot... but I love iced tea, I put a sweet n low in, I was in bed the whole weekend. Flu like symptoms, horrible aches and exhausted...ugh!

      My body is so sensitive now anything makes me feel bad. But sadly i went completely organic for 2 months straight and i didnt see any change in my symptoms. I even cut out dairy for 2 weeks during that time and i still had symptoms....i think mine is my pituitary gland. Ever since i got the depo shot my digestion, periods and mood have been a mess! It cant be a coincidence
