Re: Hi all.. can a low thyroid affect the digestive system?
Marie, I know it sounds crazy but the symptoms your describe are also symptoms of perimenopause. Especially the heavy periods and anxiety. Given your age of only 34, it's a long shot that could be what is bothering you, but it may be worth investigating. Maybe a trip over to the menopause board could help you to see if others are experiencing similar problems. It's rare, but some women experience menopause in thier 30's and early 40's. No doubt the thyroid issues are also causing you challenges, combine thyroid hormone's being off along with estrogen hormones also being out of wack and no wonder you are a wreck.
