Have you ever considered that you may be suffering from a condition that you didn’t even know you had? Hypothyroidism is a condition that in early development can present a mild array of symptoms. For some, these symptoms can be swept under the rug and unintentionally ignored. However, if left untreated, over time your symptoms can become more severe and cause many complications.
Symptoms and signs of hypothyroidism can include the gradual increase of fatigue, dry skin, weight gain, muscle weakness, a puffy face, heavier menstrual periods, joint pain, thinning hair, depression and more. If you suddenly begin experiencing any of these symptoms make an appointment with your doctor immediately. You may be at a greater risk of having this condition if you are a woman over 60, just had a baby within the past 6 months, have a family history of the condition, an autoimmune disease, have had radiation treatment to your neck or upper chest or have had thyroid surgery.
