Any relation between thyroid problems and stomach problems?
Hi there

Is there any relation between the thyroid and the stomach.Can thyroid issues also cause stomach issues?

My problem: Had a partial thyroidectomy in Aug. I am currently not using any thyroid meds(on the 8th of Nov,it will be 30 days without meds) as all my labs are showing my ''leftover'' thyroid is behaving itself.

During my hyper phase, before surgery and up to now, I have been experiencing some stomach issues. Every morning when I go to the loo,my stools are loose and ''yellowish'' in colour.Not diahorea.I can't seem to gain any weight and the last fiew days I have no appetite,extremely dizzy to the point that I feel like fainting. My stomach growls and gurgles before or after I eat.I have noticed some weight loss again. Sometimes I get a burning sensation in my stomach,no energy and nauseas all the time.It kinda feels like there is to much acid in my stomach.I also don't get any heartburn whatsoever.

Went to the GP today and he reffered me to a ''stomach'' doctor.My GP isn't really helpfull so I am happy to go to a specialist instead.

Can this be thyroid related as I never had any issues like this before in my life.My biggest concern is this extreme dizzyness.

Any advice would be highly appreciated!

Yes, there can be a relationship between thyroid issues and stomach problems.

Your issues sound like you might still be hyper.  What are the results of your most current labs?  Please post results for FT3, FT4 and TSH, along with the reference ranges, since these vary from lab to lab.
