Question: I am 58 year old woman, 5'4", 150lbs, currently in menopause. The last 2 or three days I have been getting a sudden pain and pressure in my upper abdomen that extends through to my back. it lasts a few minutes at a time and comes and goes but is especially bad after eating.I also have been getting increased hot flashes day and night, and also small hives on varying areas of my body. I am very healthy as far as cholesterol and BP, but do suffer from C-PTSD, anxiety & depression.

Detailed Answer:
Hi there
I welcome you to HCM virtual clinic.
I have understood your concern and I will suggest you the best possible treatment options.

First of all do not panic.

In my opinion your symptoms can be due to upper digestive system upset, like stomach pIn or hyperacidity, or gall bladder pIn.

I would like to know about few things in detail.
1. Are you following any type of exercise regime and diet pattern?
2. Are you taking any treatment for post menopausal symptoms?


Please avoid refined sugar and deep fried foods and bakery products and carbonated beverages in the diet.
Avoid spicy food for few days.
Do not lie down after having food .

Please feel free to communicate with me again.
I hope this answer helps you.
Thanks.
