Puffy tummy... should I worry?
I'm 55, haven't had a period in about eight months. I'm in the home stretch, I hope.
I've been dealing with hot flashes, but lately they seem to be abating.
My problem is a bloated tummy.
I have heard this is a symptom of menopause, but I REALLY dislike the feeling and I'm wondering (a) is this normal? (b) is there anything I can do? (c) will it go away? (d) what causes it? (e) should I make an appointment to see the doctor?
Does it sound like I'm fretting?
I guess I'm fretting.
I don't have gas; there is no pain; it feels like the bloating that used to happen before my periods. I am not constipated; although I will mention that I've always had a somewhat slow metabolism, if you know what I mean.
Can anyone offer some wisdom? Advice? Anything?
