If you are a woman over 35 years, according to some estimates, the chances that you’ll have a problem with your thyroid are higher than 30 percent. In men they are much less, but even they are not immune to this disease.
The thyroid gland is located below the larynx and produces hormones that regulate body temperature, heart rate and metabolism. Things can get worse when the gland is working too little or too much.
So, here are the most common 10 signs that may indicate a thyroid problem:
1) Muscle And Joint Pain
Pain in the muscles or joints and feeling some weakness in your arms may be symptoms of thyroid problems.
2) Neck Discomfort
The feeling that you have a swollen throat, hoarse voice and visibly enlarged thyroid gland may be signs that you have problem with hyperthyroidism.
3) Sudden Hair Loss
Hair and skin are particularly susceptible to diseases of the thyroid gland. Hair loss is often associated with problems of the thyroid gland. If your hair is falling or is brittle, coarse and dry it can be a sign that you have hypothyroidism. Often there are some fallen hairs from the outer edge of your eyebrow.
4) Problems With Your Gut
Heavy and prolonged blockage often is associated with hypothyroidism, as well as diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome.
