I agree with ogleme, I too think you are suffering from a variety of problems. I agree with the Panic Attacks. They have the same symptoms as heart attacks and other problems. The nausea, gassy, bloated feeling sounds like lactose intolerance. I have that problem. The burping and belching could be lactose intolerance or indigestion or some kind of stomach ailment. Do you overeat? It could be something that simple. My boyfriend is also lactose intolerant. When he overeats, he belches all night long to relieve the pressure on his stomach. Have you had an ultrasound of your gallbladder? I also think you might be premenopausal. I am. For 1 1/2 years my tongue got numb when I was tired. I thought I had a brain tumor or was going crazy, but when my chiropractor suggested Progesterone cream, the numbness went away! The hot flashes went away also! The problem now is that I have what's called "dermal fatigue" where the skin can't absorb any more cream, and the hot flashes are back. So now I'm researching ways to counteract the dermal fatigue. You might also have IBS. It can cause the bloated, gassy feeling. I agree that no one ever told us it would be this bad. We hear all about our periods in school, but no one ever prepares us for menopause. My core temp is so high most of the time that I'm sleeping on ice packs. But they don't last very long, so I lie awake until a fresh one starts to work. I liked your analogy of the pizza oven. It perfectly describes how I feel!View Thread
