I am new to all this digestive upheaval, arrived with a sudden rush of severe menopause symptoms. I don't have the cramping pains, just a dull heaviness and the feeling of needing to "rush" to the loo, but I don't really need to go, just feels like a constant tummy upset, complete with gurgling and bloating! Apparently the surge in anxiety during menopause, is what causes the mayhem, as we have hormone receptors in our bowels! However, what I wanted to ask is, is it right to have a squeezing sensation, without pain, that pushes right up into the diaphragm? It feels most odd, and makes me feel a bit light headed. Can anyone identify this oddness, or is it just menopause, again!!
