I don't have a definitive answer to your question but I am willing to bet it is probably related. I also have large fibroids and in addition to the frequent urination and gas I sometimes get stomach pains. A friend only found about her fibroid (small bowling ball size!) because she began vomiting after meals. I'm also 48 and trying to "wait" until menopause but it does get hard....
Hi Keirasix! Thank you for the reply. My stomach has settled down now. I think it is related to my fibroids, though, because it was dramatic acid reflux and burping for days before my period, which has now come, and I'm much better. Hmmmm.
They say that my fibroids (6.8cm and 5.5cm or whatever) aren't even considered large, but medium. All I can say is that if they get much bigger I'm not going to be able to wait until menopause....but I am trying! My bleeding is fine -- it isn't that. It is all the other stuff.
