Hi Ladies!

Have any of you experienced a jumpy feeling in your stomach sort of like a baby kicking or a twitchy nerve?

    Yeah, I was getting it all the time, and had a lot of gas and other bowel issues at the same time though so I chalked it up to that, was told I have GERD and that it could be a symptom of that and/or hormones.  I still get it every once in a while (just the other day) but I'm used to it now.

    Hi,

     I got these a lot before I had my op. Still get them now but less often. I think they are called fasciculations - involuntary muscle twitches. For me it was upper abdomen and felt like a baby moving or kicking. I understand they can increase with anxiety or stress. Might not be the same thing as yours of course. X

      Hi Lornaj , was just reading your post. I have the same as you, feels like twitchy electric shocks- so horrible. I've also had it on my cheeks, I've booked to see doctor Friday about HRT as I cannot carry on like this. I also read that the more we become anxious and stressed the more it affects the sharp pains - cannot win !!

      Hi Deborah

      Mine are not sharp pains just feels like a really nervous tummy and as tho I'm scared altho I am not. The slightest noise or movement gets tummy going and heart racing. Also same as you going very red and blotchy even when I'm not having a hot flush. Very embarrass ing. Unfortunatly I can't have hrt sue to health problems been told by Dr I have to learn to cope with all the effects of menopause.. Great help
