    Hi Dane

    is it like a metallic taste , its quite common in peri and post meno, i have had it and still do on occassion.

    due to hormone fluctuations in most cases, acid reflux can be too 

    horrid isnt it 😒

      Hi Jayneejay,

      For some reason, I feel very wierd also in the last few days. it's this new symptom after the other. As for the bloating and digestive problems, it's on and off. Have been feeling like something rushes from my head straight down through my legs and also both hands feels uncomfortable especially when I put on my brazzier. I have put on a bit of weight so changed my brazzier size so cannot say it's that. Also, my breasts feels heavy on and off. Have neck/back pain. I went to see my doctor last week and he said it could be acid reflux so gave me nexium and gaviscon liquid. When I feel good for a few days then I go down. Saturday for instance, I was crying like a child without any cause. I have been in this situation for a year and a half. For the back/neck pains, on the days that a get a massage, I feel much much better. As I write to you now, I have this funny feeling in my throat like a sore throat coupled with fatigue. What at all is happening and all test are negative. Please help before I go crazy. sad

      Hi Celabay,

      When all of this started for me approx 2 years ago it was with the feeling that I couldnt clear my throat all most as if something was stuck in.  I got my self all worked up and ended up the GP frightened that it may have been something more sinister but he confirmed that it was down to Anxiety and also acid reflux.

      Since hearing this I have relaxed a little more and to be honest it doesnt seem so bad.

      The sore throat may well be that you are sickening for a cold or something as this can make you feel very tired aswell.

      I too suffer with digestive problems on and off which is also frustrating cos before this never ever had a problem with the things that I ate but now have to be careful especially with fatty foods.

      I normally enjoy a glass of wine at night whilst our dinner is cooking and with this I eat crisps.  Both are heavy with the calories and have read that wine may not be good for anxiety so last week decided to see if I felt any different but more expecially if I could loose a few pounds. I was gutted to find that I still had put on weight!!

      You say about back pain I have been suffering with lower back pain for the last couple of weeks.  I too normally have massages but havent had the time recently so I must look at booking a few appointments because it does help with the tension.

      Massive hugs to you sweetie.

      Joy

      Thank you jayneejay. I think am always axious as have still not come to terms with what is happening to me. But I must say it's much better compared to last year when I had to be rushed to the ER almost every night and spent days there with them conducting tests upon tests. I am very grateful to you for the encouragement. Last night, I couldn't sleep a wink but sitting here in the office and feeling tired and jittery. Have notice when I stress a little, it takes me days to replenish the energy. On Wellwoman and Oesteo Care noe. Is there anything I can use to help. I used B6 for two months and then switched to Wellwoman. Sometimes when I do little things, then I palpitate. Thanks for being there for us.

    Do you also have a sore throat?  It could be strep throat. I had similar symptoms but with a persistent sore throat and it was strep.
