Question For The Girls

Hi Girls !
Does anyone have worse GERD/LPR symptoms around and during your monthly cycle? I have to say that being in my 40s has really been "enlightening" to me!!! But the worst thing, is that a few days before, during and even sometimes a few days after my monthly cycle my GERD symptoms and anxiety levels skyrocket. I feel like I get on a great roll of feeling pretty good and then I get bad again and tracking it, I find that it totally correlates to my monthly cycle. Anyway, just wondered if anyone else notices this?
Look forward to hearing from you all!
Crazy

Re: Question For The Girls

When its that time of the month I do notice even more symptoms mainly because, like you said, I get higher anxiety during that time. Also I tend to have stomach issues (if you know what I mean) when I have my monthly, so that messes me up more

Re: Question For The Girls

Oh yeah, i'am also in my 40s with IBS. I think the hormones play a big part in it. This topic just came up on the IBS board.

Re: Question For The Girls

I am in the middle of my cycle and I have had really bad stomach issues this month (I also have IBS which is mostly under control except during my cycle). I am in my 30's and know that hormones play a big part (I also get migraines during my cycle as well). Do you think this will improve after menopause?? Something to look forward to...maybe?

Re: Question For The Girls

I am in day 4 of my cycle, and today is a really bad one! My throat is on fire, my stomach hurts and it hurts for me to breath if I take a deep breath. I took a gulp of gaviscon, and it took an hour for it to work, but hasn't stopped burning in my throat. It always scares me and of course the anxiety that I get with my cycle makes it worse...I don't know if this is hormonal or not, but it doesn't make for a festive holiday weekend...

Re: Question For The Girls

Confused..I agree, sometimes I think that it is my heart and it makes me crazy. I had a total cardiac workup last year and the doc said that my heart is fine, I need to exercise more, but otherwise I am healthy...... This is just crazy...

Re: Question For The Girls

Crazylife, i also had a total cardic workup and was told everything looks great. I was told a few years ago that i have MVP but then told i dont so who knows. I go back to my cardio tommrow so i am asking for more test to make sure things are still ok. I woke up this morning and it doesnt hurt as bad as yesterday but my throat feels sore now but not like your normal sore throat. I hate worrying about my heart so much this has been going on for over a year now........ughhhh when will it ever end.

Re: Question For The Girls

Happy Easter All!
Hi Confused! Same for me, but with all of the news about women and heart disease it doesn't help us at all, I second guess everything! I feel like I worry all of time about this stuff. It is really hard for me because I have 2 small children, a stressful job and my husband is NEVER home.
Mine is not as bad this morning either, I still feel some pain, but nothing like yesterday. I took my prevacid and ate part of a banana and will be on my way to all of the family gatherings where they will cook all of the things that I can't eat...
Anyway, let me know what your cardio doc says, take care and try and have a good day!!

i too always think there is something wrong with my heart.i went to two doctors who both told me my heart sounded fine.but sometimes i still think its my heart.so i have to keep on telling myself its not my heart.

Re: Question For The Girls

Just curious as why you would think the burning is heart related?

Re: Question For The Girls

I also feel worse during, while having, and after having my period! And to top it all I have a very bad case of dysmenorrhea thats why it purely He** for me!! And I also feel like its my heart every time I feel some burning in my chest tummy area as it seem to radiate to the jaw, left arm and neck... something like what we assume to feel during heart attack... specialy when the burning is together with the chest flutters! Oh geez I just so writting with anxiety..
