Hi, my name is Joan and I to suffer from BMS. First of all for the first time I feel like I am not alone in this. I have been to many doctors and they just do not understand and keep trying different medications and of course nothing worked. I stopped going to see the doctors because they really don't know. Not one suggected that it could be postmenopause. I have been suffering now for about 5 years now, its so hard to remember because it creeps up without you without really realizing it. I though it was part of my acid reflex. The best thing to do is your own research. When I found this sight everything made so much more sence to me. I'm not alone anymore. That makes such a difference for me, that I'm not crazy. BMS excists. Thank you all for sharing your BMS, hopefully we can get more people to join our conversation and help one another. Mornings don't feel as bad as the rest of the day. It starts burning in the afternoon and just gets worse from there. Some early evenings it gets so bad that I will take a sleeping pill and just go to bed. Not sure why they say alcohol dosn't help because sometimes a glass or two of wine I feel it can calm me down a bit. Maybe stress has a little part of it aswell or it just takes my mind of the pain. Anyway, hope to hear from someone and share our stories and not feel alone.
