I think I have had an underactive thyroid for decades but it has never been successfully treated; so I am on no medication whatsoever for it or my adrenal issues. Only recently did my blood tests show up a raised TSH and my GP offered me Levo on it's own; which I didn't want to take.
For years now I have been collecting fluid around my body; you could describe my upper body as seeming to have a life jacket shaped retention. But it's also at the bottom of my stomach and sides.
I have googled these symptoms and the possible reasons are all serious life threatening issues; but one search gave hypo as being a possible but rare cause of the retention.
What I would like to ask is; has anyone else had this kind of retention and then had it improve once they got their thyroid under control (if that is ever really possible that is)?
