    HI Kate, Early in peri...GERD, symptoms...heart palps, chest pain, center of stomach pain, acid in throat, appetite loss, full feeling after eating only a little, lost 15 pounds. Also, bowel issues sometimes like my food is not digesting properly...frequent, loose around period, whether or not a period comes. To manage the GERD, no eating 3 hours before bed, elevate my head a little while sleeping, no spicy foods, no over eating, and I use caution with fried food. I gained back most of the weight I lost. Take good care!

    hiya this is one of the biggest issues ive had resulting withs scope down my tummy to be diagnosed with dysbracia or wind....my bowel the same , up and down but it has settled alot...i take a windese tablet from boots which hss helped with the tummy ...

    hang tight...drink plenty and get out for a walk ect...keep an eye on what you are eating to see if your is reacting to what you are eating....hormone fluctuations play havoc with your gut ....hang tight you are not alone with this and will ease with time. CK

      Hi Carol. I was wondering what your symptoms were. I have had terrible wind for 2 years. I have changed my diet and it has seemed to help. But I am filled with so much gas every day sometimes my stomach extends from it and it truly hurts. I use a heating pad and this seems to help when it gets really bad. I thought it was just me lol
