what exactly was your TSH number- because it may have been within range- but high enough to indicate Hypothyroid-
im asking- because constipation and difficulty swallowing can both be typical for Hypothyroid..
in the past i had issues with getting dizzy when i stood up... A LOT... it seems to have improved since going gluten free
Thanks for your thoughts and help!!
For me, my TSH is 1.15, and my Doc is know for treating subclinical thyroid issues, so I'm thinking that (I'm hoping that) he would've picked up on thyroid issues. Maybe the OP has an elevated TSH.
My lightheadedness is seemingly random. I do have the "dizzy upon standing up" symptom, but also I could be just walking around, or standing at the sink or whatever and feel like I'm going to pass out (eyesight goes, ears ring, heart races, feel weak, and feel a downward pulling) that only lying down helps. This also happens when trying to work out at the gym, so I don't anymore. I'm hoping that gluten-free (or even free of my known food allergens) will solve this symptom because it is really limiting and irritating.
