Could I have a thyroid problem?

Ever since I was a little girl I have had weight problems. I gain weight very easily and it is hard for me to take it off. As I have gotten older my hair falls out, and I tend to find myself in a brain fog. I am also always thirsty.

I am a newbie, but I thought I would tell you that you do have some of the symptoms. There are many more that you can go by like:
coarse dry hair
hair loss
cold intolerance
muscle cramps and weakness and aches
dry, rough, pale skin
memory loss
the difficulty in losing weight and unexpected weight gain
difficult menstral periods
decreased libido

Those are some that I have listed in my own notes, but I think there is more out there.

If you have a bunch of these and the other symptoms, then you should go talk to your Doctor!

Take care,

Your thirst could be an indication of type 2 diabetes. You should probably get that checked.
