I have had IBS symptoms for 2 years now, the main ones being severe constipation and fatigue. I've had a colonoscopy, endoscopy and laparoscopy etc and everything came back clear so my doctor has suggested a low dose antidepressent and yoga because he thinks it's all down to stress. I have been on prucalopride for a year but I'm so fed up of being given laxatives that don't seem to make any difference. I think I have had the standard TSH thyroid test which came back fine but I am now wondering whether I should ask to have further thyroid tests done as I seem to have every symptom for hypothyroidism except for weight gain. My symptoms are as follows:
- chronic constipation, bloating, fatigue, brittle hair/nails, achy joints, vitamin d deficiency, tingling in hands and feet, enlarged red blood cells, double vision, heavy periods and anxiety/depression - (mainly feeling down because of feeling ill all the time).
