      Are you having a thyroid problem? Find out.

      The thyroid is a small gland in your neck which generates thyroid hormones.  When your body has too much of thyroid hormones, this condition is known as hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is the opposite, here, the thyroid gland does not produce enough of the thyroid hormone. 

      Symptoms of thyroid problems

      Unexplained weight change is a key symptom. In Hypothyroidism or Underactive Thyroid, a person would fail to lose weight despite increasing exercise and cutting calories. One may also gain weight. In Hyperthyroidism or Overactive Thyroid, one would lose weight for no obvious reason or keep losing weight inspite of consuming more calories.

      Swelling in the neck can be a major sign of thyroid disease. There could be swelling or fullness in the neck. The neck might become enlarged. There could be difficulty swallowing or breathing.

      Sensitivity to temperature is another classic symptom. In Hypothyroidism, one would be unable to tolerate cold while Hyperthyroidism, will make one feel hot and sweaty even in a normal environmental temperature.

      In Hypothyroidism, one would wake up feeling tired even after seven to eight hours of sleep. Long naps and marathon sleeping sessions on days off would also result. In Hyperthyroidism, it would be tough to get sleep and one would tend to wake up several times in between.

      Those with Hypothyroidism might also face depression and depression that does not respond to anti-depressants. Those with Hyperthyroidism might face anxiety, panic attacks and panic disorder.
      Hypothyroidism results in brittle, coarse and dry hair and hair loss. Thick, dry and scaly skin and brittle and dull nails are other symptoms. In Hyperthyroidism, there would be severe hair loss, unusual skin rashes and skin sensitivity.

      Brain fog is another sign of thyroid problems and one would face memory problems, cognitive decline, lack of focus, confusion and so on. Hypothyroidism may bring aches and pains to the muscles and joints, especially in arms and legs. Carpal tunnel syndrome may also result.

      Thyroid and periods

      In women, Hypothyroidism can result in painful menstruation, heavy periods and lesser time between periods. Hyperthyroidism would result in lighter or infrequent menstrual flow or even periods that stop.
