Bloated with hypothyroidism
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidsm 2.5 years ago. Along the long list of symptoms was one that made my doctor give me a pregnancy test - I looked like I was six months pregnant. I wasn't pregnant, I was bloated. My blood work came back and the result was 256 - and so my doc put me on levothyroxine. The problem with bloating never completely went away, plus it's been a huge struggle to loose a sinlge pound, but overall once I started taking the meds, I felt great.
Lately, however, the bloating is getting out of control again and I'm gaining weight even though I'm gluten-free and really watch what I eat. My labs came back normal, so I'm wondering if maybe I should consider switching to a brand name, such as Levoxyl?
Anyone else experienced similar issues? Please help!!
