Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like
The sweating and increased heart rate could well be from menopause but your gastric symptoms don't sound like that. The bloating and wind may be from an H pylori infection of your stomach and you need to see your doctor about that and be screened for it since if that's positive you need a course of antibiotics to eradicate the infection.
You need to have your hormones--estrogen and progesterone, FSH and LH--checked for menopause
I finished a course of antibiotics two weeks ago - as I had been suffering from diahorrea. These symptoms have now gone but the feeling of bloatedness and wind have remained.
I saw my doctor three weeks ago and he saw an infection from my blood test and gave me the antibiotics - so I hope they were the right ones. He also did a stool test and checked my stomach using ultra-sound - so I am hopeful this uncomfortable bloated feeling is nothing too serious - as he couldn't find anything wrong. I haven't changed my diet, exercise or lifestyle ... but wondered if I could have started becoming intolerant of a food - or is this unlikely?
The problem is I live in Tanzania. I don't know if they have the facilities to do H pylori screening. How do they do this?
Either by a breath test or a specific blood test.
It may not be H pylori but I had to include that in the possibilities Alison
One thing you could try for now is to take a lactobacillus probiotic
