Trouble digesting meat?

Edited , 4 users are following.

okay i have been in perimenopause for 6 years, no period for 12 months now but i always seem to have the pms symptoms and feel like im on my period just no bleeding....however ive noticed in the past few months ive been having very bad sick days where my stomach rolls with nausea and my lower gut gurgles and carries on something awful with no diarrhea just constipation, i will literally feel as though i have a stomach flu but i know i dont cause it happens so often. I have narrowed it down to every time i eat any red meat or pork products it makes me very sick! I cant even eat anything with tomato in it now or creamed soups, but I can eat milk products, eggs, chicken and turkey with no problems. What the hell!! I mean my whole life ive never had trouble with digesting meat until this menopause bullcrap.....can anyone else relate to this? I am so sick of things i enjoy being taken away from me!! I feel like life isnt worth living if you cant eat a damn thing without getting sick!!

    Totally relate to what you are going through. My issue is rice or anything with rice (noodles). It gets stuck & takes a while to go down. chest hurts too. i try not to eat after 7 pm. i don't eat greasy foods. i will wake up at midnight & want to throw up. i sit up & feel better. it is gastric reflux. i find gaviscon tablets help.

    Me too, i use to enjoy red meats. Ive noticed every time i eat meat it takes ages to digest and i get nausea, indigestion and bloating for hours. Its one perimenopause symptoms after another. It really kills the joy of our life.

    Hi Brandy,

    I've been going through a bout of rolling nausea, feeling like I have the flu, for about a week now. And have experienced this many times before. I have also developed numerous food sensitivities that can make me quite sick. It's highly frustrating. I'm right there with you!
