Your thyroid gland produces hormones that control where and how the body’s energy is directed. When your thyroid faces issues, problems occur. Your metabolism and your body’s repair and growth process will slow. Other symptoms of thyroid problems include feeling tired and chilled, gaining excess weight, hair loss, muscle fatigue or pain, as well as skin issues, such as itchy and dry skin. Additionally, you may experience heavy periods, constipation, trouble with recall, and you may feel down or depressed more frequently. If you recognize these symptoms, talk to your physician for a correct diagnosis and the right steps to take.
