Other Common Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism:

    • Anxiety, depression, and brain fog or loss of mental clarity, are often experienced as a symptom of hyperthyroidism.

 

    • Changes in bowel habits, especially diarrhea and frequent bowel movements, have been reported. Abdominal bloating may also be an associated symptom of hyperthyroidism.

 

    • Changes in menstrual patterns in women have been identified as a symptom of hyperthyroidism. There are some indications that the sex hormones, testosterone and estrogen, levels in men can be affected by a thyroid disorder. “Low T” problems, for instance, may result from the body’s inability to convert testosterone to estrogen. Thyroid conditions can interfere in hormonal conversions.

 

    • Fatigue and weakness is a commonly associated symptom of hyperthyroidism and other thyroid and autoimmune conditions.

 

    • If the thyroid gland enlarges as a result of hyperthyroidism, it can appear as a swelling (goiter) at the base of the neck. Sometimes this swelling is not clearly visible but wearing ties and scarves around the neck may be uncomfortable.

 

    • Increased sensitivity to heat has been recognized as a hyperthyroidism symptom.

 

  • Two signs associated with hyperthyroidism are dry, thinning hair and skin.
