my cortisol level was low (6), which is the very bottom of the normal range. It isn't Addison's but not sure how it plays into my GI bloating issues and being on T4 because of a thyroidectomy.

I just had my cortisol levels checked and am waiting for the results. Over the past 18 months I have tried dicyclomine, 2 different SSRI drugs, and the FODMAP diet (still on it though doesn't seem to improve the bloating) but the bloating just gets worse. It is to the point that sometimes I feel like I might vomit because the gas is stuck in my stomach and upper intestinal track. I just moved in June so have started with a new doctor and new insurance. Prior to that time I had the same PCP and Mayo Rochester for my specialist.
Severe bloating and gas daily following thyroidectomy for multinodular goiter. Switched from generic levothyroxine to Brand Tirosent with no improvement. Celiac negative and H.pylori negative. Has anyone started liothyronine (T3) for GI issues following thyroidectomy?
