After a conversation with a girl in work in a bit worried I might have an underactive thyroid.
She was talking about how dry her hair was and I was sympathising, then later I was talking about how cold my hands and feet get and she told me that was the first sign she had of having the underactive thyroid.
As well as the cold hands and dry hair i do feel tired but i cant be sure if its unrealistic as its all i know =S
i get constipated sometimes - is this a sign?
i also feel a bit lightheaded and seam to be getting a lot of headaches?
does anyone else have an underactive thyroid and recognise these symptoms?
interestingly my mum takes medication for an underactive thyroid (but she didn’t get any symptoms it was just picked up in a blood test so no point asking her about them) is it a hereditary thing?
