3. Hypothyroidism Symptoms

As mentioned, the thyroid gland has quite an impact on our overall wellbeing. If it is not functioning as it should be then the patient can end up with some very unwelcome symptoms. Perhaps the main symptom is fatigue and lethargy. The patient won’t feel like doing anything and will generally move as little as possible.

The lethargy also carries to the brain and the patient will generally be slow and lazy in their thoughts. Other symptoms include weight gain as less energy is burned off. Constipation is another symptom, as are muscle aches and cramps. The patient can also develop dry skin and a sensitivity to cold.
