I'm going to my GP this week as I have a low level of Thyroxine, as a recent blood test showed. The first blood test I had in January this year also showed a low level of Thyroxine, but my GP wanted to do another test just to confirm. She said this was because I didn't display as many of the symptoms of Hypothyroidism that she would have thought.
My main symptom has been with my digestion, anything I eat I feel and look extremely bloated. This worsens the week before my period. I have suffered from extreme constipation for years, and have had no help from GP's that I have been to in the past. After I changed GP I have now have these tests done and am so grateful. I should imagine I'll be put on Thyroxine tablets now. I would be interested to know some of the side effects that people have experienced?
Other symptoms I have include very lifeless hair and lethargy despite eating a wide, varied and balanced diet and sleeping 8 hours on average.
However I am not overweight, but feel I very well may be if I didn't walk everywhere and go to the gym 3 times per week. I strongly recommend to everyone with this problem to be as physically active as possible. This will ensure that a slow and sluggish digestion will be 'helped along' and excess calories will be burnt.
