    Early manifestations of hypothyroidism

    Hypothyroidism may be undetectable by us in its early stage due to its vague presentation. Take a look at how it presents early in its course:

    Frequent symptoms are fatigue, lethargy, weakness, arthralgias (joint pains) or myalgias (muscle pains), muscle cramps, cold intolerance, constipation, dry skin, headache, and menorrhagia (excessive menstruation in females).

    Physical findings may be few of absent. Features may include thin, brittle nails, thinning of hair, and pallor. Delayed relaxation of deep tendon reflexes and bradycardia (slowing of heart) are sometimes noted.


    Do not ignore any of these presentations, and contact your physician immediately to know if you are really developing hypothyroidism.

    Re: Early manifestations of hypothyroidism

    thanks for the info, alice. i will keep those in mind if, heavens forbid, me or any of my close family relatives felt the symptoms. i have a friend who had a thyroid problem after she gave birth, it got really big and she then gets problem breathing, so she had it removed which was very costly.
