Can all of this be perimenopause symptoms?

The last few weeks, I've been having issues with my stomach, which I have had for years, but this is a bit different.

I've had cramps go thru my upper abdomen like waves, which I assume is gas. My stomach gurgles quite alot and I've had a bit of diarrehea(sp) the last couple of days. I also have some cramps lower down, a bit like menstrual cramps and sometimes I just have aches going through my pubic area. My lower back has been achy, as well. I just finished my period about a week ago, but that doesn't necessarily mean a whole lot anymore!

Can aches like this go along with peri?? I don't think I like this much.

Re: Can all of this be perimenopause symptoms?

A couple of years ago, my stomache was also gurggling/growling almost every day - usually in the afternoon - but also at other times. It almost was like that empty stomach noise, but I did not have an empty stomach. I was about 47 at the time, and thought it might alsio be related to perimenopause (I was having other issues as well - such as irregular periods etc.. ).

I did some reearch and found that I am lactose intolerant (I never was before). I stopped having cereal with milk in the morning, and cut way back on ice cream (which I had mostly in the evening) and it stopped.

I read that this can happen as we age - so I guess it's not that usual. Also, both my son and daughter are lactose intolerant - diagnosed as children, so it wasn't surprising that I am too.

If you intake alot of dairy, then I would try cutting back and see if it helps - and go from there.
