I have had an underactive thyroid for a while and been taking medication for it, it goes up and down where sometimes I feel fine and other times I strug. But now I also have a lot of passing wind, burping, feeling very sick, horrible taste in mouth, frequent urination, back pain that comes and goes - which always seems to come on or get far worse if I take steroids or pain killers, a pain under right ribs that comes on when bending over or sitting down sometimes, breathless and wheezing that comes and goes. Have had kidneys liver and spleen checked and fine - the doctor insisted on it - as she said gallbladder/gallstones, though it didnt point to that to me. Am now waiting for a check about the adrenal glands which is taking a long time. These things started off a while agoand have gradually got worse. I used to go bed and have to get up twice in the night to wee, now it can be dozens of times, sometimes having to go again within moments. It is not diabetes. I feel awful and it i hard to go out when you are like this. I have to be near a toilet all of the time and dont want to eat because of feeling so sick. It is also hard to lay down and get to sleep.
