I’m hoping someone can give me some advice.
I’ve been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and September I went Gluten free.
This helped me no end and my Thyroid results and anti body results also lowered. No medication been prescribed.
I’ve been feeling so much better.
However, I’ve noticed this past week, I’ve had tummy pains, trapped wind, the symptoms I was experiencing before I went gluten free.
A few nights again I was doubled up in pain and the following day my tummy felt so sore.
I thought at first it was perhaps mushrooms being the culprit, but it seems to be everything now.
Once I have eaten I feel my tummy making popping noises and feel so windy.
My consultant said there was nothing further he could do as my Thyroid results had reduced and he was not authorised to prescribe me any medication, basically I thought it was a waste of my own money, as he said by my own research being on this forum and previous advice from this forum I have improved the situation myself.
You guys have been brilliant, thank you.
I do feel a lot better, I am now sweating at the gym (not done this for a long time) my weight is stabilised, and I don’t feel the cold so much (although I still do) my brain fog has gone and I’m not as emotional.
However I am still experiencing muscle pain but it’s now in my fingers and ankles.
Is there anything that I should cut out other than gluten, I am super careful what I eat and prepare my food at home. I’m trying to think what it is, I thought it was my Pepsi cherry max, I have two cans a day, I cut them out with no effect.
I am seeing a nutritionist now as Consultant said nothing further he can do, and as I never want to go through the last 18 months again, I want to make sure I am doing everything I can to help my situation.
I’ve had my blood sugar levels tested which are ok, and I’ve sent off a stool sample (waiting for results).
Any advice greatly appreciated.
