Tummy troubles

Edited , 5 users are following.

Hello lovelies!

Hope you all are doing well during these troublesome times.

For the past week I have been having terrible digestive issues. My period came off last Wednesday and for the past several days I have been having gas, bloating, heartburn, stomach pain, náusea. I feel like the poster girl for an antacid commercial. Anyone else get this?

    Hi there,

    I suffer with my tummy, all the symptoms you mention. My doctor sent me for endoscopy which came back with a diagnosis of Gerd, which apparently is another symptom of Menopause. I'm on stomach tablets and thank god they are working fine. Feel better soon x

      Thanks for replying. It's always reassuring to know that there are others who can relate to this. What stomach tablets are you using? I'm glad that it helps. I haven't found anything yet to help.

    Yes, perimenopause and the fluctuation of hormones definitely effect your digestive system!!

    Yes im having them now, nausea, loss of appetite, lots of gas, bloating, tummy pains, the gas moves around even in my breast, also feeling like its pushing on my abdominal organs and causes pains, once it comes out i feel a bit relief but it tends to build up more gas again, it can be quite painful at times and it raises my anxiety. Been to my doctor who did ultrasound and says its definitely gastric issues relating from this stress and anxiety im experiencing. Im on meds since yesterday and feeling a bit better.
