What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism?

I need to know the symptoms of hypothyroidism.


Answer by  josie (287)

Symptoms can include fatigue, decreased appetite with moderate weight gain, muscle aches, constipation, cold sensitivity, dry skin, hoarseness and depression. I have had hypothyroidism for many years and have experienced all of these symptoms at various times. Prior to being diagnosed, i was extremely exhausted and did gain some weight. Recently when my level was off, I was quite depressed.

I have hypothyroidism and I've had it for decades. Years ago before my doctor discovered it and put me on thyroid medication, I was weak, tired, and gained weight.
