1. slow metabolism related with hypothyroidism means slow transit of stool which may result in infection along with use of any medicine containing codeine which may further contribute to constipation. [any history of the same]
2. if hypothyroidism is the cause make sure it is not Hashimoto's disease which contribute 90% to DV [diverticulosis], check for this Autoimmune disorder with an Endocrinologist.
3. after Brain second most important organ is the Gut where thyroid receptors are present and deficiency of the same [hypothyroidism] means you are prone to Coeliac diseases.
4. the best diagnosis is with colonoscopy.
5. in the mean time take gluten free diet and high fibre diet.

PS. muscle cramps, heat intolerance is one of the ADR [adverse drug effect] of the Levothyroxine sodium [taken for under active thyroid]
