ok gonna try to make this all short. I have diarhea at least 4x a week. Sometimes last 24 hrs. It is super runny but no blood and i go so much that I know there is nothing left. My side hurt so bad because of it and it is truly embarassing. I can not go anywhere beause I will have accident if I dont get to bathroom fast.

Sometimes it isnt to bad but when it hits it is so weird. I get a flush feeling like the room went from cold to hot sometimes a little dizzy. It is like I know get to bathroom or else.

I have been Cancer free for 3 months now. I had thyroid cancer so they took the whole thyroid plus lympnodes around it. I also had radiation done to make sure they got it all and was told I was in remission 3 months ago.

I have high blood pressure on and off i just had my yearly physical and the girl area is fine no herpes or aid or anything like that there but she did do blood work this is what it was

Cholestorol was 250
Triglysirides was 352
HDL & LDL where both under 100

She uped my thyroid medication to 200 levosion <--- no clue how spell it
I take 50 of hyper something for my blood pressure been on it 2 years now was told like a water pill i take very little of it... She said my Triglysirides was very high suppose to be under 149.. My cholestorol is a little high

I am so sick feeling at times it is hard to have a normal love life thank goodness I have a very loving fiance who is patient...

Anyone have a clue what is going on here

  • There is a product called digestive advantage and another called culturelle that might help you. Also, could you have giardia? I think if your meds were too high you would also have a rapid heartbeat. Since you had your thyroid removed you were in a hospital. Did you need antibiotics during that time? Antibiotics mess up your intestines and you may need the probiotics I mentioned above. I hope you have a pedialyte on those days. There was a time when I was making plans to keep an old half gallon plastic ice cream container in my car for the times I couldn't make it from my driveway to my front door. Luckily it never came to that. Have your TSH checked.

  • I bought mine at a grocery store out here that has a pharmacy. WalMart does not have a lot of specialty items. Just ask at a Longs or Walgreen for a probiotic for digestion. Different stores carry different brands so you may not get what I bought here in California. You cannot always see the blood in your feces. If this does not go away you need to see a GI doctor as it could be Crohns disease or ulcerative colitis. UC has periods of remission when the symptoms stop and you feel cured only to come back a year later. I know you do not think this is related to your thyroid meds but I'm giving you a link to a forum where you can speak to other women who have had their thyroid removed. http://thyroidproboards30.com/index.cgi?
