No pain and bowel movements have been pretty normal. I don't know what's causing this. Should I worry? I am 45, in good general health and only other thing is that my periods have started to be irregular. Just began today after having skipped last month.

BTDT Carbohydrate intolerance. Sounds like you are perimonopausal, our ability to break down sugars deteriorates during menopause because we no longer have the enzymes needed to do the job. Sugar and insulin spikes and disruptions are harder to control because as the excess sugar builds up in your system and you are not aware of it and you begin to crave even more carbs during the cycle whether you have a period or not. Water is critical as is exercise. I was experiencing IBS, night sweats and absolute intolerance to the point where if I ate carbs in the evening I was bloated and gassy for the next three days. I hope this helps. [ Reply | More ]

The main things to be worried about with IBS or IBD are obstructions or infections. You don't sound like you have either, so don't be alarmed. Do go to your doctor and relate your symptoms. I think you will be ok. The solution may be as simple as antibiotics or probiotics. Gas can come from a bacterial overgrowth. Try limiting simple carbs (flour and sugar) and raw fruits and veg for a couple days. I think that might help you. And do make a doctor's appointment. [ Reply | More ]
