Common Hypothyroid Symptoms

So far this hypothyroid experience has not been as bad as I expected. These are some common hypothyroid symptoms and I highlighted the ones that I've experienced so far, a week off my meds - although the symptoms weren't sudden, or all at once.

Early symptoms:

  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Cold intolerance
  • Constipation
  • Weight gain (unintentional)
  • Depression
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Thin, brittle fingernails
  • Thin and brittle hair
  • Paleness

Late symptoms:

  • Slow speech
  • Dry flaky skin
  • Thickening of the skin
  • Puffy face, hands and feet
  • Decreased taste and smell
  • Thinning of eyebrows
  • Abnormal menstrual periods
  • Swelling
  • Bloating
  • Hoarseness
