Can fibroids cause digestive problems?

I have a fibroid at the top of my uterous.

For two years now I've had trouble digesting my food on and off, some burning in the upper abdominal area just under my ribs.

Is it possible to fibroid has grown and is putting pressure on my intestines and causing me these problems? My abdomen looks bigger as well.

Also for the last two months my period has been irregular and spotting in between (very unusual for me).

Re: Can fibroids cause digestive problems?

The fibroid would not be causing the digestive problem. But you might want to be evaluated for gall bladder issues. Is the discomfort more on your right side? I just went through that. I had it removed and have no further problems.

The spotting between periods is a symptom of your fibroid. I get uterine polyps from time to time and they also cause spotting between periods. If you had it removed, then you probably wouldn't have spotting between periods anymore.
