Thanks for posting your query.
With the available describes symptoms, there appears to be high possibility of hypothyroidism.
Presence of constipation, bloating suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ general surgeon and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for complete blood count, blood sugar, serum electrolytes, and thyroid profile.
You should take plenty of water, high fibre diet and laxatives containing lactitol and isapgula.
You should perform increased physical activity to maintain gastrointestinal mobility.
You should also go for endoscopy for better clarification of upper gastrointestinal tract.
You should also take proton pump inhibitors along with prokinetics.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
