Your symptoms might be possible side effects from the HRT, as it can often cause bloatedness and abdominal discomfort. You will have to consult your doctor for a gastroscopy to rule a peptic ulcer or reflux disease out. An upper abdominal ultrasound will have to be done to exclude gallstones. In the interim, you can use Gaviscon Advanced, three times daily before meals, as you do have symptoms of gastric reflux disease.
