Hi I have hypothyroidism/Hashimoto's thyroiditis which is being treated and I am taking 50mcg Levothyroxine. I have been on treatment for this for 4 years. Current symptoms are worrying me, some of them are to do with my digestion and after eating certain foods? The symptoms I had were a burning in my throat/gullet, nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea and upset "swirling" feeling in my stomch as if I were hungry.
I have cut out bread, pasta, grains, dairy, coconut, apples, pitted/seeded fruit, caffeine and the digestive symptoms all started about 3 weeks ago. I am guessing coeliac disease? H.pylori test in 2014 came back negative. Scans done on abdomen and chest have come back clear. C reactive protein level low so no infection or inflammation. Have been getting increasingly more urine infections though. Taking no other medications.
Other symptoms which are not digestive related are dry skin, eczema, pins and needles, spasms in hands, itchy feelings on skin, feeling cold, heavy periods, tiredness, hair loss, puffy eyes, headache, pale skin, anxiety, constipation consisting of morning rushes and hard stools during the day, goitre and thyroid swelling.
I feel very much lost with my symptoms, could anyone please advise what might be happening to me? Thank you
