Severe indigestion/trapped gas/heartburn & Hyperthyroid
Hello, I just found out about 2 mos ago I am hyperthyroid. I am still waiting to see an Endo. Dr. so I am not on any meds yet. I thought the uncontrollable body burning, anxiety attacks I was experiencing a few weeks ago was bad....now started the severe heartburn. Usually starts in the evening, 4-5pm every day now for a week and a half. Stomach has air bubbles that I can hear moving around and my whole esophageus burns, and I get nauseated!
I have drank liquid antacid, tums, prevacid, pickle juice, vinegar...you name it.
Will this awful heartburn stop when I start some thyroid meds? I heard hyperthyroid/heartburn go hand in hand alot of times. Anything I can do while I am waiting to see an Endo. about this? Its making me miserable! Every night!
Try Baking Soda the directions are on the box. It works for me when others fail. I get heartburn when I'm hypo or hyper. Yes.. once you get regulated you should feel better but it can take some time. It is good you are going to a Endo!
