Hi. I'm hoping one of you knowledgeable people will be able to help me.
I have had thyroid problems for almost 40 years; the last 20 I have been hypo.
My NHS GP gave me the contact details of a private GP because she was unable to prescribe anything other than Levo which I haven't done well on. The private GP has been gradually changing me from Levo to Erfa and I currently take 25mcg Levo before rising and 30mcg Erfa after lunch.
In the last 3 weeks or so I have become increasing bloated with stomach cramps in the afternoon and evening and by a process of elimination it appears I have become lactose intolerant. The stomach cramps have improved if I follow a lactose free diet but I still bloat quite badly.
Is this lactose intolerance linked to Erfa?
Thank you to anyone who has any advice.
