Common symptoms would be rapid weight loss (Or gain) depending on whether it is Hypo or hyper thyroiditis. Another symptom of progression would be bulging eyes as well as either extreme hyper activity or chronic fatigue. Either way this could progress into a more serious condition and should be properly diagnosed by a vet.
