Hi guys, I am new here.
I wonder if anyone can advise me. 2 months ago (to my shock!) I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Prior to that I felt very-very tired and lethargic, even in the mornings.
THS was 5.8 and T3 and T4 normal. Vitamin D levels low. TPO was 10 times higher than normal range, so they also diagnosed autoimmune thryroiditis. I was told I need to take liquid viamin D and thryroxine - possibly for life, starting from 50mcg. Almost immediately, after I started taking Thyroxine, I started feeling extremely bloated - painful abdomen and stomach. I gave up for a few days - felt a lot better. Then started again - pain returned. Some days it's so bad my life is not worth living. I even feel pain in my sleep and dream of it. Tried taking thyroxine on an empty stomach to begin with, then after food, then with food - no difference. Thyroxine did not make me more energetic, neither did it make any difference to my life so far - the only thing that is better: my face stopped swelling so much around the eyes. Anyone can help? I am at my wit's end(
If this information of any use, I have had two ulcers of the duodenum in the past and generally have week stomach.
