Could Your Fatigue, Muddled Brain and Extra Weight be a Thyroid Problem?
Difficulty in swallowing
Excessively dry skin
Low blood pressure
Significant fatigue not related exercise or lack of sleep
Chronic recurrent infections
Mood swings of anxiety, panic or phobia
Acne and more
If you have some or all these symptoms (as many as 1 in 3 American adults have a thyroid condition) and your doctor has done a T4 or T3 test that is showing normal, you need to find a doctor that will run a full thyroid panel or at least a TSH test. Sometimes it is more complicated then just having low T4 or T3. There are many aspects to how your thyroid functions and effects your body. It is important to have a full picture of what may be the problem. If you would like to read about thyroid conditions in more depth I would recommend the book, "Thyroid Power" by Richard L. Shames and Karilee Halo Shames.
