I have a low thyroid, which should be controlled by medication (T4)  meaning I can live a normal life. However mine does not want to play that game. I still remained ill!

People think that having a low thyroid is all about being tired, it can actually be a life changing disease that affects you at a very basic functioning level.

Here is checklist you can print off, complete and take to your Doctor.

How Many Symptoms Of Low Thyroid Do You Have?


Memory Problems,
Trouble Thinking Clearly
Swelling of Tongue
Dry Skin and Brittle Nails
Dry Cracked Heels
Loss of Sex Drive
Heat Intolerance
Hair Loss
Hoarse voice
Irregular or Heavy Menstrual Periods
Muscle Cramps
Weight Gain
Inability to tolerate cold
Inability to tolerate heat
Mood changes
No sex drive
Feel restless
Puffiness in face and joints
Difficulty concentrating
Eyes feel gritty or not focusing
and I have most of them and a few more as well.
I know that stuff is boring but I just want people to know that there is more to the thyroid than controlling tiredness, so watch for the early warning signs.
