Does This Sound Like Hypothyroidism?

Postby Arlan » Thu Sep 07, 2017 3:41 am

I have lower back pain everyday, constipation for days, I'm gaining weight but not eating differently. I put on 30lbs by changing nothing. Im always tired and stressed out with work and school so I don't know of that has anything to do with it. I also get cold easily ( my feet stay cold longer and takes me a while to warm up)and my period was a lot lighter this time.

A few months ago, I was very sick, zero energy, freezing cold, depressed, weight gain, thought I was dying. I read every word of this Hypothyroidism Revolution program and followed all the advice. My life turned around the first week. I started to feel human again. Within weeks my energy came back and I felt like living again.

Get the entire hypothyroidism revolution system today? just choose the best option for you.

After I read this question, I thought maybe I asked it! (but I no longer have periods and have not gained 30 lbs) I have all of the above and I had my Girle exam and when they did the blood test, they stated that I have hypothyroidism- a few other symptoms can be mild brain fog and your skin is dryer. They did call in a prescription for me and wanted to see me back in 6-8 weeks, however I have procrastinated and not picked it up yet.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone.

See also:

?Chronic thyroiditis (Hashimoto's disease)

?Subacute thyroiditis

?Silent thyroiditis

?Neonatal hypothyroidism

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck just below the voice box (larynx). It releases hormones that control metabolism.

The most common cause of hypothyroidism is inflammation of the thyroid gland, which damages the gland's cells. Autoimmune or Hashimoto's thyroiditis, in which the immune system attacks the thyroid gland, is the most common example of this. Some women develop hypothyroidism after pregnancy (often referred to as "postpartum thyroiditis").

Other common causes of hypothyroidism include:

?Congenital (birth) defects

?Radiation treatments to the neck to treat different cancers, which may also damage the thyroid gland

?Radioactive iodine used to treat an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism)

?Surgical removal of part or all of the thyroid gland, done to treat other thyroid problems

?Viral thyroiditis, which may cause hyperthyroidism and is often followed by temporary or permanent hypothyroidism

Certain drugs can cause hypothyroidism, including:


?Drugs used for hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), such as propylthiouracil (PTU) and methimazole


?Radiation to the brain

?Sheehan syndrome, a condition that may occur in a woman who bleeds severely during pregnancy or childbirth and causes destruction of the pituitary gland

Risk factors include:

?Age over 50 years

?Being female


Early symptoms:

?Being more sensitive to cold



?Fatigue or feeling slowed down

?Heavier menstrual periods

?Joint or muscle pain

?Paleness or dry skin

?Thin, brittle hair or fingernails


?Weight gain (unintentional)

Late symptoms, if left untreated:

?Decreased taste and smell


?Puffy face, hands, and feet

?Slow speech

?Thickening of the skin

?Thinning of eyebrows
