Unsettled stomach feeling and hot flushes

Posted , 13 users are following.

I have a question for the lovely ladies on here . I wonder if anyone can help me . Sometimes just as I feel that a lot of my symptoms have gone away , I get this sick feeling in my stomach and an overwhelming heat that travels up my my body from my waist . What I would like to know if this is normal or is this to do with my anxiety that almost brings these symptoms on , as I hate feeling sick . It's s bit like the chicken or the egg , which came first . Are these real symptoms or psychosomatic ? Am I slowly going mad ? As I have said in a different post today all of this stemmed from my mothers death last year and seemed to come out of nowhere . Ever since then I have been a nervous wreck and seem to have suffered from so many ailments . I have just turned 49 and still have periods . I am suffering from hot flushes , any exertion and I am sweating and need to cool down . It's a nightmare and my migraines are worse . Please let me know if any of you gets these sicky feelings or is it all in my imagination ? I hate being so anxious . Lots of love Jane X

    Hi Jane

    I'm going through the nauseous stage at the moment. I've been like it for 4 weeks. It's horrible. Take care x

    Sick feeling could just be from anxiety. The go hand in hand. And as for the anxiety if you reduce your sugar intake it will dramatically reduce anxiety . I have recently stopped eating choclates and high sugar stuff and omg I can't believe how my anxiety levels have dropped . I would definitely reccomend it. I went from highly anxious to so cool and calm . So I really do not have problem doing without the goodies. Just to feel less stressed.

    Hi Jane

    So sorry to hear about your Mom, I'm not supriesed it's affected you so badly ! Anxiety definitely makes me feel sick and hot ? But equally the Perimenopause cause anxiety in the first place ?? You have to try and ignore the feelings otherwise they escalate, I know that's easy said than done

    I hope you will feel better love Deb xx

    Hi Jane

    It seems that is your precursor to your hot flash. I have been 9 years post meno, and still getting hit flashes. My precursor is a very quick dizzy felling.Then my stomach feels upset , then bam .The hot flash. I still get this everyday even though no period for 9 years. It just sucks

    Yes, i can relate totally. To make a long story short, I am in perimenapause and that exacerbated my anxiety leading to very real physical symptoms. I found a website that explained the physical connection between anxiety and symptoms and have learned a lot from it also,I have been seeing one of.their counselors and have started being able to live my life again. If your interested in the website info, or anyone is, message me. I can't post it on here cause they Block it. Basically, your nervous system is all screwed up and we need to learn ways to learn how to calm it down and keep it calm we also have to learn how not to fight all the symptoms.

    Peri menopause for sure. I suppose tragedy at this time dies nor help to say the least. So sorry you are having such a stressful time.maybe some natural pill to calm down can help.Go in to your health food store and ask. Esp at night they help me sleep better.

    hello Jane,

    I have all these symptoms and more!  Aren't we the lucky ones??  I was sitting in the movie theater tonight and had a quick burst of an acid feeling in my stomach followed by some light headedness and then a hot flash.  Im starting to think that there is something seriously wrong with me. I just had an upper endoscopy on Wednesday which said mild gastritis, reflux and possible barretts (wating for the biopsy results on that ).  this all started after the sudden death of a very close friend followed 3 weeks later by my Uncle.  i am 53 and have not had a period since June...also battling  the GI stuff in addtion to neck and eye issues, dizziness, etc.  I am on a very strict reset type diet <fruits, veggies and protein only,no beans or legumes andn o night shades. I also have hashimotos.....so many things playing into it...im just tryting to stay positive.  From the comments on your post you can know you are not crazy or alone in this. Anxiety is a diagnosis of exclusion and often a fall back for not being able to explain what is going on.  Id say rule out the other things first, then consider  anxiety.  that being said though, we all could use better insight on how to relax because if our symptoms arent caused by anxiety, they are sure causing it!!

    I am new to this but first I would like to tell all you ladies it is so great to get feed back from each other, I also have hashimotos and colitis, and if you have issues going into this they are always made worse in my opinion especially a week or more before your cycle...hot flushes all day and hot flashes all night... Cramping sometimes for days and an upset stomach quite often, I get very dizzy sometimes and my condensation can be way off and I used to wear high heels everyday. I am 50 yrs young and own my own business but there are days I can barely get off the couch the exhaustion can come on fast and hard it is crazy, I never dreamed what some of us would go through....take care ladies we are all in this together I just hate when doctors ignore this stuff... It is real!!!!??????
