3. Symptoms

One of the first symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease is a swollen thyroid gland, which is known as a goiter. The other symptoms will gradually appear and worsen as the disease progresses and the thyroid becomes increasingly damaged. When symptoms do show they will typically include fatigue, and sensitivity to cold temperatures.

Other symptoms include constipation, weight gain, and muscle weakness. The patient can also develop stiffness, aches, pain, and tenderness in joints. A puffy face is another potential symptom as is dry, pale skin. The patient can also develop a swollen tongue, they can start losing hair, and their nails can become brittle.
