Thyroid Symptoms

Thyroid disorders can affect numerous body functions due to the essential role of thyroid hormones in metabolism, development, and overall health. Symptoms vary depending on whether the thyroid is underactive or overactive. Here are key symptoms associated with common thyroid conditions:

  • Hypothyroidism (Underactive Thyroid)
  • Hyperthyroidism (Overactive Thyroid)
  • Thyroid Nodules and Goiter

Hypothyroidism (Underactive Thyroid)

Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid does not produce enough hormones. Symptoms often develop slowly over time and can include:

  • Fatigue and sluggishness
  • Increased sensitivity to cold
  • Dry skin and hair
  • Weight gain
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Muscle weakness and aches
  • Decreased heart rate
  • Impaired memory
  • Puffy face
  • Hoarseness
  • Elevated blood cholesterol level
  • Irregular or heavy menstrual periods in women
  • Thinning hair


Hyperthyroidism (Overactive Thyroid)

Hyperthyroidism results from an excess of thyroid hormones. Symptoms tend to appear suddenly and can include:

  • Sudden weight loss, even when appetite and food intake remain normal or increase
  • Rapid heartbeat (tachycardia) — commonly more than 100 beats a minute
  • Irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)
  • Pounding of your heart (palpitations)
  • Increased appetite
  • Nervousness, anxiety, and irritability
  • Tremors — a fine trembling in your hands and fingers
  • Sweating
  • Changes in menstrual patterns
  • Increased sensitivity to heat
  • Changes in bowel patterns, especially more frequent bowel movements
  • An enlarged thyroid gland (goiter), which may appear as a swelling at the base of your neck
  • Fatigue, muscle weakness
  • Difficulty sleeping


General Symptoms for Thyroid Nodules and Goiter

  • Visible swelling at the base of the neck
  • Feeling of tightness in the throat
  • Difficulty swallowing or breathing (if the goiter is large)

Both types of thyroid disorders can significantly impact quality of life. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is crucial to consult a healthcare provider for a thorough evaluation and appropriate testing. Thyroid disorders are usually manageable with medication, lifestyle adjustments, or sometimes surgery, depending on the severity and nature of the condition.
