Thyroid Symptoms: Is It All In Your Head?

Thyroid Symptoms: Is It All In Your Head?

Thyroid symptoms can be varied and blaring or they can be subtle and mildly annoying. But, there are a few symptoms that many who have thyroid disease mention. The first one I had and struggled with a lot was being cold. I was always freezing cold. It felt like the cold was deep in my bones. It wasn’t until I switched medications from Levothyroxine to Armour Thyroid that the cold feeling went away.

In this article by Nikki Cagle, she shares 4 symptoms that many thyroid patients suffer with: #1 is being cold, which I mentioned above, #2 is being moody, #3 is weight gain and #4 is depression.

I have rarely talked to those who have hypothyroidism who don’t mention at least one of those symptoms. I know that when my thyroid hormone levels are low, being moody is not even on the scale! I am bitchy! Actually, it ‘s beyond that! My partner, Ron, with say very carefully: “Have you checked your thyroid lately?” He knows the ups and downs of this disease and will tell me when he notices my mood is off and will tell me.
