for those who don't know me I am a 28yr old girl diagnosed in May this year with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. My doctor has started me on 75mcg Levothyroxine and after a follow-up blood test has increased it up to 125mcg.
Honestly, I've thrown everything at this. I go to reflexology once every fortnight...I've cut out gluten and wheat...I've increased my water...I eat 4 of my 5 a day of fruit...I take Spatone...I take my meds...and everything was fine from Monday morning until today - when the constipation came back.
I'm working so hard to make the constipation go away and stay away but I really don't know what else to do. Because it's come back it makes me feel like I've gone back to square one again and I also look bad again - I looked in the mirror yesterday and my eyes looked the best they had ever done in a long, long time. Today I looked in the mirror and the bags have come back, I feel absolutely exhausted and my ribs were aching from the constipation.
I'd like to think that the constipation today was a one-off, but not when I also look more tired than yesterday. I feel like I'm doing something wrong. I see the the doctor in two weeks' time for a meds review and I'm hard-pushed to ask for an endo referral.
Can anyone advise?
