Ive been dealing with constipation for over a year and Its gradually gotten worse to the point im always constipated. I might be lucky and have a couple of days out the month where im feeling better but other than that i have to take laxatives otherwise nothing happens. Im constantly bloated and I also have bouts of nausea and throwing up after eating. It will feel like pressure in my chest and then food will come back up. The only food i can eat at the moment that stays down is salads however ive already lost over a stone in weight unintentionally. I also drink a protein gainer as i dont want to lose any more weight and this is fine for my stomach.
If i eat any heavier food such as meat, pasta, potato, even soups will cause a lot of abdonimal bloating, pain, throwing up and will make me even more constipated.
I also have hypothryoidism so was assuming the constipation was related however im on medication and my recent blood tests show my tsh levels have gone down to around the level they should be. I still have other hypo symptoms such as fatigue, dark circles around my eyes and being cold. The only difference is that ive lost weight instead of gaining. When will my hypo symptoms go away?
Does anyone with hypothyroidism have the same stomach problems as myself? Are my stomach problems even because of my thyroid, or could it be something else? Ive even had a gastroscopy and everything came back fine. The doctors i see dont really help so im left feeling unsupported.
Im very miserable. I dont want to be like this all the time. Do hypo symtpoms even go away?
