I'm 21 years of age and live in Cork. I was diagnosed with IBS about 2 years ago and since then have been suffering chronic constipation. I've have numerous tests and procedures, colonoscopies and gastroscopies but haven't yet found a a cause for the constipation. My tyroid levels are "borderline" low and the doctor has dismissed this as being a cause of the constipation. Lately my hair is getting very thin and am cold all the time. These as you know are symptoms of low thyroid levels so I think my constipation, although it is "borderline", may also be a symptom. I've going to ask my doctor for a referral to a consultant, but would you have any suggestion as to who might be a good option in Cork.
