I'm 49 and started with perimenopausal symptoms 3 years ago, hot flushes, irregular periods, and most of all extreme gas and bloating. It's so bad that I feel like someone is squeezing my waist as hard as they can non stop for most of the days out of the month. I might have relief for 2 to 3 days or so and then it's back and when it comes back it's CONSTANT. Not a little in the morning, then goes away, it's non stop all day every day. I've tried gas x, pepto bismal and laxitives but none of those have helped. I also do intermittent fasting and have been for awhile with success so I know that it's not from eating. Anyone going through the same or have any advice?
