    Aww, that's a horrible dream BlueIris
    Please try to remember it's just a dream because you are certainly not worthless.
    Bloating and gas is so common, a little embarrassing with the gas if you are out. Its funny if it's a guy farting but a woman doing it is seen as disgusting. Mr C gives me one of his looks and he's like jet engine most of the time, lol.
    I know it sounds back to front but if I have a bloated tummy I will eat more to move the bloatedness. Or make a freshly squeezed lemon drink. Its such an uncomfortable feeling and makes you very sluggish.

    I'm really lucky, Mr Iris isn't particularly traditional and he's known I'm naturally gaseous since within a couple of weeks of first meeting me.

    This is the thing, bloating doesn't destroy my appetite, it makes me famished for some reason.

    Yes, because mostly its air causing the bloating.
    It might have been from rushing a previous meal, taking in too much air when eating (this can happen when you talk while eating) or you might have had a mealtime with a much later time than usual.
    Obviously bloating can also be :time of the month' or with women they can still get the monthly cycle feelings.
    But if you are belching it's trapped wind. And a good fart releases that as well as eating even if your tummy is bloated.
    Mr Iris sounds a star

    I have terrible wind, I often have to rush to the loo at work just to pass wind. Although sometimes it happens unexpectedly if I sneeze, cough or even laugh, fine when I'm not at work, not so good when I'm there.

    Sneezing, coughing and laughing can also make me pee!
    Horrible, but true.

    Welcome PKstracy.

    Those symptoms sound familiar.

    Has anyone mentioned no sex drive?

    And being easily irritated?

    Pkstracy I could tick off all of those except my periods are still pretty regular ( anywhere from 23-32 day cycles LOL. I used to be a to the day 28 day cycle). I'm 50 as well and not sure when I really started perimenopause. I only really started looking into it when my periods got a little wonky but a lot of the other symptoms I've had for many years.

    Hmm yeah Carnation sex drive what is that ?? LOL. Lucky hubby doesn't care. He's got so many pain issues he's probably glad haha. My moods are all over the place, cry over stupid things, get irritated by minor stuff etc. It's frustrating, I was a very chilled out person in my younger years.

    Hi all, not posted here in yonks but glad I found this thread!

    I was on HRT until two years ago and am now post meno but there isn't a day when something doesn't feel wonky!

    Still get a few hot flushes
    Anxiety
    Digestive issues and nausea (have GORD anyway)
    Brain fog
    Poor concentration
    Lack of motivation
    Irritated sciatic nerve
    Parasthesia
    Insomnia
    Psoriasis flare-ups
    Muscle aches


    The past few days I have had sore, tender skin and muscles all over - like when you have flu but I don't actually feel ill.

    Gritting my teeth hoping all this will settle down properly eventually!
