Hypothyroidism is a disease where the thyroid gland malfunctions and produces hormones in low quantity. It may cause several symptoms that can affect vital organs and functions of the body. A person may not notice any symptoms in the early stages of hypothyroidism. But if unattended, it can cause serious complications like infertility and heart disease. Generally, there are several treatments but homeopathy medicine for thyroid diseases is proven to end thyroid issues such as hypothyroidism right from its roots.

Here are 10 common symptoms of hypothyroidism that you shouldn't ignore.

  1. Sore Muscles and Joints

Hypothyroidism can affect a person's body by causing aches, pains, stiffness, and swellings in muscles and joints. This can cause immense pain while indulging in everyday physical activities like walking, climbing stairs, etc.

  1. Weight Gain

Thyroid hormones are major contributors to regulating body weight, food intake, and metabolism. People with hypothyroidism can experience excessive weight gain along with puffiness around the face.

  1. Fatigue

Our body requires a certain number of thyroid hormones for the production of energy. Lowe levels of hormones such as in the case of hypothyroidism often result in severe exhaustion and the inability to do daily chores.

  1. Memory and Mood Changes

Individuals with hypothyroidism can experience various symptoms like-

  1. Anxiety
  2. Depression
  3. Mood swings
  4. Impaired memory
  5. Decreased attentiveness and concentration

The symptoms occur because the low level of thyroid hormones affects the brain and hampers its functioning.

  1. Chills

Thyroid hormones regulate the metabolism process. Hypothyroidism slows down metabolism which decreases the core body temperature of a person. This is why people with hypothyroidism can experience chills even in a warm room or during summers.

  1. Menstrual changes

Patients suffering from hypothyroidism can experience heavy or irregular periods. Low levels of thyroid hormones restrict the functioning of estrogen and globulin that are major regulators for menstruation.

  1. High cholesterol

Thyroid hormones help remove excess cholesterol from the body via the liver. Hypothyroidism affects the capacity of the liver to carry out this function and causes blood cholesterol levels to rise. The majority of people who have high cholesterol are always found to have an underactive thyroid gland. 

  1. Slow Heart Rate

People with hyperthyroidism may experience a slow heart rate. This condition is called bradycardia. It can cause weakness, dizziness, and breathing problems in the patient. If treatment is ignored, it can even lead to serious complications like heart failure.

  1. Hair loss

Hypothyroidism may also lead to hair loss in patients as thyroid hormones are essential for the growth and health of hair follicles. Hair loss is observed in various body parts like the scalp, eyebrows, legs, etc.

  1. Dry skin and weak nails

Low levels of thyroid hormones can cause the skin to be dry, pale, and scaly. It may also lead to dull, thin nails that break very easily.
