What are the symptoms of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis?
Some patients with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis may have no symptoms. However, the common symptoms are fatigue, depression, and sensitivity to cold, weight gain, muscle weakness, coarsening of the skin, dry or brittle hair, constipation, muscle cramps, increased menstrual flow, and goiter (enlargement of the thyroid gland).
I found this on the internet and everything(except goiter) is exactly what I have. Why is it so easy for me to see this and people on this board have helped but my dr is not even considering the possiblity
I have felt bad for the past 7 yrs(after having my first son)things just didn't bounce back. It seems more problems keep popping up. The itchy skin is new except my back has always itched. I jokingly call it itchy back syndrom. But I'm itching in spots I didn't know could itch.I may have to put those mittens over my hands like you do babies.Oven mitts might work.
