Acidy stomach & PMS!
I was just looking up if anyone else gets really bad acid stomach, reflux
and what feels like anxiety and irritability, just before period, along with feeling really tired the day before it starts. I usually get a headache, which can last up to 2 days, but the sore esophagus and stomach acid is the main issue, and that awful anxiety feeling. This goes away usually after start of period at some point, and isn't too bad the rest of the month! I'm putting it down to perimenopause, and have had this about 18 months I think, it seems to get really bad if I eat the same as PMK42 - chocolate cake, fried foods, alcohol, and too much caffeine! Not sure what to tackle first, but think it is mainly hormonal cause, as mostly ok the rest of the month.
