Severe gas that you are having is very likely to be due to constipation that is present in hypothyroidism. If you are on any medications, that also may be contributing to it. Add fibre in your diet and see an endocrinologist for treatment of hypothyroidism. I hope that helps. Thanks.

I would also like to add that menopause also causes bloating. So, hypothyroidism and menopause both may be responsible. Thanks.
