Menopause and Gas.....

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello Ladies,

Over the last couple months when all these symptoms started , I have developed really bad gas sometimes with bloating. It's a horrid feeling. Im so hungry at times but can't eat due to so much gas.

Just wondering has anyone else expierenced this?

    Yep. Gets so bad is today completely shirt if breath. The gas sits in my chest I think and it's not till I burp repeated I get any relief. Plus also feels like every sip of fluid or food gets resisted on the way down by gas coming back up. Hybby wants to go out to dinner tonight and I'm $&&&ing myself cause I'd rather just stay home and eat easy food.

    I'm thinking of starting up the vitex again cause for us early on it seems to work better. Maybe if we stabilise our periods/hormones the rest will settle down. I stopped early last time silly me

      I thought it was just me. The gas just sits in my chest. It only feels better if I can burp or pass gas the other way. It is accompanied by heartburn at times. Just blowsy mind at how so many things changed and so quickly. I've never suffered with gas like this.

    Yes Jamie I have this too. Mine is really bad right now as well. It's awful because like you said I'm hungry but there is so much acid it's uncomfortable to eat. I also start to wheeze a little bit because the acid from stomach comes all the way up to esophagus. So much fun all of these crazy symptoms. Hope you are able to eat something.

    Gas! Gas! Gas. Don't worry jamie50513. It will reduce. I've had it for the past three years but now very moderate. Drinking black tea and garnishing My meals with ginger helps. I wish you the best.

      Thanks so much. I am going to try black tea. I drink ginger ale for the gas sometimes, but I'm thinking I need to try some other form of ginger as the carbonation can add to the gas.
