How Many Symptoms Of Low Thyroid Do You Have?
Many people don’t realize the extent that the thyroid can control you. Just have a look below at this list of symptoms of low thyroid:
I have highlighted the ones I have.
Depression – has improved with my new medication
Trouble Thinking Clearly
Swelling of Tongue
Sleepiness– has improved with my new medication
Fatigue – has improved with my new medication
Dry Skin and Brittle Nails
Dry Cracked Heels
Loss of Sex Drive
Excessive Hair Loss
Constipation – has improved with eating Sultana Bran everyday.
Insomnia – has improved with my new medication
Irregular or Heavy Menstrual Periods
Muscle Cramps – I have started taking Magnesium at night, so my leg cramps have subsided.
Inability to tolerate cold
Inability to tolerate heat
Snoring – bf hasnt told me I dol
While you may not have all of these symptoms at once, if your thyroid is left untreated you could experience most of these eventually. If you have been experiencing as many as 3 or 4 of these problems on a regular basis, I would highly recommend that you go have your blood work done.
This disorder affects approximately 13 million people around the world and it is believed that the numbers are much higher than this. Many more people are simply undiagnosed. so it could very well be the reason behind your sluggish days of feeling bad. Just pick out two off this list and that makes for a rotten day, can you imagine the way it feels to have more symptoms.
