    Hi Karen

    i suffer with IBS and when I'm stressed and having a flare up, it feels like period pains in my stomach so yes it is normal, I got prescribed some IBS tablets by the doctor and after a week of taking them it cleared up, I only take them as and when I need them, they are a lot better than the ones over the counter. I would go to the doctors and get some if you haven't already, obviously if they don't work you know it could be the anxiety or reflux

    Wendy is right. Ginger and tumeric are good remedies for intestinal distress. 

    I get pretty persistent diarrhea just before my period comes. Are you in a part of your cycle that gives you gastric troubles? 

    And this is my standard question since I worship at the church of probiotics....Are you taking any probiotics?  biggrin

    Thank you so much for opening up this discussion. Towards the end of my period I had a really bad gastric flare up with stomach and chest burning, gassy stomach, loose stool, pain in lower belly. It's been awful. But I see that I'm in good company. The perils of menopause, will it never cease?

      Belly swelling below the belly button can sometimes be gas. That would sync up with your stabbing pains.  This may be a ridiculous question, but have you taken anything for gas? Is the pain on the left side just below the breast? That's the descending colon and where we  can feel gas and constipation pains. 

      Constant pain drives my anxiety through the roof! My guts get all disordered just before my period arrives.

      No I don't take tablets I have a fear of them. So I am trying other things. I also get bad tummy things usually just before a period. I don't have pain under my breast more in the middle entering the upper stomach. 

      The anxiety is unreal. I imagine the worst all the time. 

      My belly was so sore I couldn't cough even, but today it seems improved, but still weird and sore. I do feel windy, I hope it is just gas. sad xx
