Hi all, i've only just been diagnosed with hypothyroidism (only started meds 25g thyroxine 2 days ago) and am researching loads. I get constipated and bloated, tired and grumpy, have fluid retention and feel cold. I was hoping that once on a regular dose of thyroxine these symptoms would be reversed or what is the point in the medication. I'm confused as to why so many people are still constipated etc and taking lots of probiotics and other stuff. Do the meds not work? Do you have other illnesses as well as the hypo? I'm very confused right now.
