I have been dealing with bloating/constipation issues for about 13 years! They told me I had IBS and that was that. Also, lactose intolerant (sugar tests were negative). My bloating started out just happening in the evenings but in the last 3 months it was constant. I was miserable and never wanted to go anywhere b/c I was so uncomfortable and the thought of putting on nice clothes was out of the question! I looked pregnant. I FINALLY went to a functional medicine/integrative MD and after tons of blood work and stool specimens, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, adrenal fatigue, and gut dysbiosis (leaky gut). I was amazed to read about how ALL of these things are related and affect one another! I am now on thyroid meds, many supplements and an elimination diet. I am so hopeful that this will FINALLY be the answer to my prayers!! Anyone else experience anything like this??
