Was diagnosed with the above medical condition, 10 days ago......and feel positive about the future. I have felt ill for so long, without understanding why, that to know I actually have a condition which explains my ill feelings is great. To know that it is a very treatable condition, however, is excellent. Have been highly active all my working life and never sit down. I have true worker hands! I have always been a side 10 and very slim so to suddenly experience a rounded bloated middle - particularly the upper abdomen is not only highly uncomfortable but very expensive! Like so many others, I put all my symptoms down to getting older.etc etc. However, it was very demoralizing.
Today I feel more energised than I have for many many months so I think the Levothyroxine is now beginning to work.... Stomach still very bloated and very very uncomfortable - (has seemed to get worse not better)......but I am hoping that this condition will also abate very soon.
Would love to hear if anyone else suffers this bloated, full uncomfortable feeling in the upper abdomen?
